My advice is to leave the initial committer list as-is, and then wait to
see who actually shows up to do work on the project during the
incubation process.

Part of what the IPMC looks for during incubation is can the podling
community self-govern, a large part of which is voting in new committers
in an appropriate fashion.

Separately, when a podling is ready to graduate, and the IPMC votes to
recommend graduation to the board, the actual committer and PMC lists
for the top level project sometimes change versus the whole committer
list during incubation.  People who never show up to actually work on
the podling probably should not be left on the committer list for the
future top level project.
