This actually misses one of the above requirements: contributions must 
be recent, thus if you last contributed 50 years ago but you plan to 
start contributing again from tomorrow, you won't be able to renew 
your membership.

I think we never defined any time period but recent contributions can 
be considered the ones from the past month to past six months. (that 
also depends from case to case and from the amount of contributions 
the applicant did during his stay on the GNOME community)

If applicant's contributions are not recent enough, the "planning to 
actively contribute in the future" requirement isn't taken into 
account at all, thus we wouldn't accept an applicant that did a 
non-trivial amount of contributions one or two years ago but applied
