Let's stop arguing, please. I'm out of the current vote anyway and if for
Rostislav (and probably others) it's just about counting commits I'm definitely
not among the top committers. If that's a valid metric for activity is another
question. However, IIRC the current committee has been chosen by that and
therefore it is kind of valid to weight that against me.

Thus if the voting committee wants me in, just vote me in. Everyone there should
be able to judge about my activity in the project including Rostislav who was
among the devs I've met and talked to at VDD'15 (IIRC). It's completely ok if he
thinks I'm not active enough for the committee.
