I disagree. First of all there was another committer, who dropped off  
for health reasons. So the original author had no problem accepting at  
least 3 more people on board. Saying how many committers they should  
have after X years sounds like a business plan. It doesn't work this  
way in open source.

Then there are different types of contributions. Some warrant a  
committership, others show that a given person should not be given SVN  
write access under no circumstances. Then there is a pace issue (which  
I think is at play here, and this is being reevaluated now), where you  
need to see a person become a community member before allowing SVN  
access. This has nothing to do with maturity, just common sense.
