Indeed. And yes, they're active; that's easily established by reading
the dev@ list, commit log and Jira log.

I was quite surprised by how quickly the project got contributors from
"outside", and anyone who takes the trouble to actually look at how the
community operates will find that it is very helpful and receptive. I
wouldn't be surprised if there are quite a few TPLs and even recently
graduated podlings that could take the Ignite community as an example
rather than the other way around.

I suggest that everyone who doubts that this is an "open and diverse
community" should go and read the mailing list archives for the last few
months or so instead of making uninformed statements based on some
incidental numbers. If, on the other hand, you prefer running the IPMC
using statistics instead of facts, you could at least have made the
effort to look at the trends instead of a point-in-time snapshot.
