I believe that it's important that the Membership approval process is
more than just 'one persons opinion that the contributor is good'

That said, I also feel that requiring 4 votes has proven to cause far
too long approvals for a very long time

I'd like to see the lowering of the threshold to + or -3 votes, which
is a number the membership team can quite often reach without problem.

Hello,

I'm in the way of trying to makes more live the membership process. This
mail should have been sent to the "membership_official" list only, but most
of his members are probably also on -projet, and this number is not now
large enough to have a normal functioning.

normally, we should accept or decline a submission if it reach *4* votes in
the good direction.

Problem is some submissions are pretty old and I think very bad to have
people waiting an answer.

two kind of people do not give any problem:

* ones having no contribution at all and not listing any or asking to make
contributions in the future. I think these submission should be declined by
the first member of the team that sees them, with a kind message (anyway all
the submission results a e-mailed on the m_o list, so anybody knows)

* some peoples have a large contribution (like people making the OSC-15
happen) and could be accepted may be with only two positive advices. Should
be on this category people who's contribution is confirmed by one of the
team, even if it's not too much visible on the net (I think for example
Nicolas that held the openSUSE booth during a hole week at RMLL!!)

for the people having some plus and some minus, the m_o list is there for
discussion.

What do you think?

thanks
jdd
