That's great!  One of the questions I have for the project is: why
haven't they made you a committer yet?  (That's a question for the PMC,
not for you, really, but it's one I'm betting the Board would be curious
to hear about).

Just to be clear as noted else-thread: the PMC vote is merely a
recommendation to move to the Attic.  Given the discussions here, my bet
is the board will defer the resolution, so don't give up yet.

For historical perspective, similar cases like this in the past have
resulted in the Board appointing an/some Apache Members to the PMC to
help provide mentoring, and to directly invite existing contributors to
be committers or join the PMC.  Then the Board would wait to see if the
new energy can revive the project again.  We try to avoid the Attic if
there seems like there's energy still here willing to try.
