This is true, I completely agree.
I am not sure if I understand the relevance though: The list of 
people on the voters committee contains both people who have 
(a certain amount of) patches in FFmpeg but also people with 
no (or only a very small number of) commits.
So I don't think this is related.

Of course, this is why Thilo should be part of the committee.

Note that I did mention Thilo fixed one of the codecpar regressions 
making him qualified under your conditions.
