I agree that diversity is a derivative requirement however, I think  
that there should be a list of all the committers and their company  
affiliation, if they are being paid to work on the project, for every  
project web site.  I know that it's being done with varying degrees.   
But if we're going explicitly downplay diversity requirements for some  
projects then I think we need to be diligent on being upfront on the  
community makeup.
