So IIUC that's about 50 committers from the same company and most of
them don't have experience with open source, or at least not at the
ASF.

Doesn't that drastically lower the chances of the project creating a
diverse community?

I would much prefer a smaller list of initial committers who have been
identified as having experience or a solid potential to be ASF
committers, and let others be elected based on merit as the project
progresses.
