That's what I was asking about. In particular, the person who was inquiring
me off-line about this proposal had a non-trivial amount of commits to
then Sun NetBeans between 2002-2008. He then drifted away from the
project but would be interested, potentially, re-engaging.

Given the size of the pool of potential candidates like that, I'm not saying
we should block the VOTE until we get the initial committer list just right.

Still, the question remain -- for somebody like that, what would be a criteria
to be added as a committer after the project enters incubation?
