The thing is, this isn't a change in committers in reality - it's
replacing a wrong list of committers with a more accurate one.

I think this is a good idea in any case. So, to kick things off, here's
where I stand:

I have worked on xapi since 2006, well before it was an open source
project. I've done all sorts of things on it in that time, from work on
the storage interface (in particular working on storage migration), the
events mechanism, the CLI, and other bits and pieces.

What I'm aiming to focus on now is to continue the efforts to take the
xapi project from being something that only builds and works well in a
XenServer context to being something that works well wherever you run
it. We've made enormous progress already on this front, but there is
more to be done! I'd be very keen to work with anyone who wants to get
it working on their favourite distro :-)
