The following discussion was started by Matt Hogstrom (one of our mentors) on 
the vcl-private list (list for PPMC members) about the possibility of VCL 
graduating to a top level project.  We decided the discussion should really 
take place on this list instead.  I've somewhat reformatted it to have it all 
included and a little easier to read.  In the thread, there is reference to a 
previous discussion that took place on the vcl-private list (that could have 
been moved to this list as well) about removing people from the initial 
committers list that had not contributed any code or documentation.
