I did respond to that e-mail... I do not expect Brian or Spiros to work
on the project again any time soon, but Prof. Johnson should be listed

We also ask that you tell us how the official Project Lead is so that
we can update the records.
- You explain why these people should continue to be committers
spite of appearing inactive, or
- You tell us to "un-committerize" them. Committers that are
removed can, of course, be reinstated when they resume their active
work on the project.
