I don't suppose we have stats on that, do we? 

My first project was CloudStack, and I was surprised to find other
podlings *didn't* distinguish between committer and PPMC. While PPMC
votes on members, being a committer does give privileges beyond just
being an occasional contributor, so some folks may find it a useful step
between "we have to review all of your patches" and "you're helping with
governance/growth of the project."
