We could always be doing a better job at diversity, but I’m not sure that’s the issue

The bar to committership should be low and all forms of contribution considered by the (P)PMC.
Many people end up being voted into communities without making code contributions, and this
has happened to me on more than one occasion.

Someone who is being paid to work on a project should have no issues is achieving this in
a very short time. So I’m not sure what the issue is here. Is it in engaging people who
have been assigned these roles to be publicly involved with the project and follow Apache
values or is it something else?
