It all depends on the scope of the question. For a GNOME Foundation
membership request, the question is "has this person donated
considerably more time and effort to GNOME than could normally be
expected of a user?" - filing one bugzilla bug is a "no", writing a QT
application is a "no", I think writing a GTK+ application would probably
qualify as a "yes", being a volunteer during a GUADEC would be a "yes", etc.

At what stage of the process does the question of whether the person is
a good contributor or a bad contributor come into play? Should it come
into play at all?
