<h3>4. COMMITTERS</h3>
The following individuals are the current developers and maintainers of this
component, there are many emeritus developers. The lack of commons committers is
indicative of the long stagnant period, plus recent "new blood" that haven't been
involved long enough to be voted in as committers. Developers who plan to use
<em>Email</em> in their own projects are encouraged to collaborate on the future
development of this component to ensure that it continues to meet a variety of needs.
