I've always understood the rule of thumb counted organizations 
represented, not committers.  Since most votes permit a veto, having a 
majority of committers doesn't grant one control of a project.  If there 
are 14 committers from one organization, then my interpretation of the 
rule of thumb is that we need to be at least two from two other 

It is of course just a rule of thumb.  14 from one organization and only 
two from others indeed wouldn't smell right.  But I don't believe that 
there's a hard-and-fast rule that 15 committers from other organizations 
must be added before it could graduate.
