For example,  in an existing project like Wicket seeing who is
proposed to be the initial committers is very relevant - especially if
there were key members of that community that didn't want to be part
of the project after moving to the ASF. Since individuals/community is
of prime importance to the ASF, not including a list of initial
committers in this example would IMO be bizarre.
