There are definitely parts of Commons where a little bit of investigation
could point out that "Yes, on DBUtils 1.0, David Graham was the lead
developer" (Sorry David :) ).

That may be true, but certainly we do have the right and responsibility to ensure that our desires, as far as how we run and represent ourselves, is accurate as well.

It has always been a major foundation of the ASF that projects
are built and developed by communities, not individuals.
Terms such as "lead" or "main" do cause harm to the community
and have always been actively avoided.

And, yet, all of the complaints about the article have been from people that aren't involved with Tomcat development ;-).
