I don't think that there is a move to give "special treatment", at 
least that's not what I'm after.  I think that there is a reasonable 
community around Derby (and recognized the problem in the new committer 
creation rate from the beginning of this...) and I wasn't aware that 
there was a hard and fast rule of 3 "legally independent" committers.  
Instead, I thought it was a recommendation and good practice.  My 
mistake, certainly.

I'm happy to wait for a third independent committer, who will 
undoubtedly remove the concerns we have about the independence of the 
other 10 existing committers :)

Maybe we should look for an additional metric for community health and 
diversity for next time.  It could be in addition to the "rule of 3", 
but I think this example shows where we can improve things to help 
ensure healthy communities.
