Ambari's code base isn't functional yet and until it is and it is
difficult to build a community until a version works. All of the
contributors  are employed by Hortonworks, which exposes the project
to the whims of the company's priorities. There's a new code base that
has been checked in on a branch that is close to working. Once there
is a working version, I hope that community will build.

I agree that Ambari is no where close to graduation and was close to
being dead. I hope the new code base will revitalize it.

It was very active for September to January. I explicitly called out
that the project had been dormant since January.

He was added to the IPMC. The message from Noel was dated 6 Oct 2011.
