I'd go for pulling Jakob in for tactical and strategic reasons

1. He's using it at work, so represents the end users.
2. His code is always of high quality
3. Given the ongoing discussion on diversity w.r.t Flume, I think it would
be wise to not follow that projects example, and try to get broader
involvement from the outset.

Irrespective of the committer list at entry, you will need that broader
community at exit, so getting them in early is good.

Anyway, your decision, it won't effect my voting -it's just a different
action from that which I'd have taken.

Now, why are my tests failing...
