if someone appears inactive in the limited stats I have collected but
you know them to be an active committer (maybe they answer newsgroup
posts or write tutorials or ??), then you are not required to
decommitterize them. The decisions are yours to make, but I encourage
you to trim more rather than less as "Active participation ... is
critical to the success of the Project."
Is it possible to have a "set to active"
action for committers who is active on web site, news group,
bugzilla, etc..? Such status can be good for N month, after which your
auto-activity-checking will kick back in. With this tool, we can
set a goal to have a clean committer list that only have active
committers and "Committer Emeritus".
otherwise, we will always have some active committers in "red square"
