As I mentioned in another thread I'm not so big on this rule. Having a fixed
number is IMHO a bit too rigid. Do we forbid graduation for a project with 4
active committers among which 2 are in the same company? How the project
deals with its governance (are the independent committers opinion taken into
account? are they ignored?) is, I think, more important. Am I the only one
to think that way?

That being said, having the list of active committers with affiliations in
the graduation vote request would be helpful.
