It's 2 weeks later and the above along with Carlos'es suggestions are
both good idea in my mind.

I see them working together like this:

- By default, any one member of the membership-committee can approve a request

- Any one member of the membership-committee can veto the default one
member approval rule and force the application to a full membership
committee vote

- During the membership committee vote, borderline issues about
following the guiding principles can be taken into account to
delay/deny membership even for someone that is clearly contributing

I think that this really should be decided by the board rather then the
membership committee. The board has clear rules about how its elected
and replaced and deals with these issues in every other part of the
project, whereas the membership committee is just a bunch of volunteers
helping apply a basic set of rules as an administrative task.

IMO, only if the membership committee doesn't reach an agreement, or in appeal.

After all, the committe task is to aprove or not new members...
