It's up to the current committers to ask to be included in this list.
This happens for every single project with more than a few committers
that is being incubating.

The rational being that committers who haven't been active for a certain
period of time are likely to be not anymore interested in the project.
That's fine, nobody should be included if they don't care anymore, but
we should include anyone who has participated in the past and want to be
part of the incubating project. It's realy a no brainer.
