Right. We said that we would not block projects from joining just
because the contributors were mostly coming from one source *because* we
wanted to let teams attract new contributors, and we were told that some
companies would only allow their employees to work on official projects.

In my mind, it is far more important that the project doesn't seem
very healthy/active right now. I would be happy to hear that I am
wrong in that impression, though.
