Following-up on this as we didn't have sufficient time for discussion
during this week's TSC and we wanted to continue the conversation over

For additional context, please look at notes that several community members
contributed to on this topic at

There was a strong consensus to move away from committers as constituents
for both nominations & voting in TSC elections.  That's how we arrived at
looking at several tools to identify "active contributors" (of code &
non-code) in OPNFV.  As I mentioned on the call, the proposal is for PTLs
to have an input on the active contributors list that is generated in case
people fall through the cracks.  No matter which metrics we chose, it's not
going to be perfect....
