Sorry, if I managed to brake some CoC. I have no idea what you mean by
"mean well", but their attack on RMS was quite tasteless.
   Philip is a major developer of many current and emerging GNOME

Which technologies? TinyMail?

Tracker for example.

   Lefty represents ACCESS in the Advisory board and is a regular
contributor to the adboard meetings as well as being a regular at GUADEC and
other GNOME conferences.

Nothing personal, but I never trusted those corporate "Open Source
Advocates" ... . Besides,  Lefty does not work for ACCESS Inc. anymore
-- he is a director of the "Open Source Technologies"

Whether you trust him or not is irrelevant. You asked for his contributions to GNOME in the past year, and I enumerated those.

   FWIW, just being a regular at GUADEC is enough
contribution to apply for Foundation membership.  We have that in our rules
and we have accepted members just passing that criteria.

I did not know the threshold was dropped that low.

It has been that "low" for years. Foundation is not a developers-only league. Writing code is not the only way to contribute to GNOME. Plus, for all the "engage the community" talk, doesn't it make more sense to push the threshold rather low?
