Once again, there's no set number that you have to reach to graduate -
it is not about numbers.

What we want to see from the ASF side is that the project is
sustainable, which means being able to bring in new committers and PMC
members, as in general it is common for people to leave or become less
active over time.

It seems like the initial committers of the Groovy podling have been
around for ever, and maybe you're all planning to stay for ever...but
still, a community needs to be able to renew itself over time, that's
what a podling needs to demonstrate.

As I said before, being a committer does not necessarily means commit
code - if someone's a project evangelist for example and you'd like
them to be recognized as a core team member the only way in an Apache
project is to make them a committer (and maybe PMC member). As in
"committed to the project", even if they don't write code.
