I'm with you on this Vincent, although I'm the last one to want to
throw this thread into another argument about rules...

I would compare this to, for instance; when you read the guidelines
for wrapping a release of your module, it doesnt say we'll burn you
if you ever forget to tell i18n-list or something, but I think people generally
want to collaborate and want to know their work is appreciated.

Personally I think that years ago when I joined it would have made me
feel like GNOME was a warmer place if the introduction was politely required,
otherwise to some it might come across like nobody cares that somebody
took such an interest in GNOME.

Not to mention it would be very interesting to me at least; to know
why new members have taken an interest in GNOME.
