aha yeah, that's one of my personal duties though :-)

Yeah, mostly:

1. Verify applicant's listed contributions (i.e code, translations,
bug triaging etc.) and check if they are non-trivial enough to grant
2. Contact the provided vouchers and hear their opinion
3. If unsure about granting someone membership or not, ask for another
ack from any other Committee member
4. Process renewals

Nothing too difficult and there's plenty of documents handy on the wiki already.

I didn't have anyone in mind to be honest but I'm happy to see a few
long time members are throwing their hat in. The Committee does not
have a fixed number and since many of us are really busy nowadays I
feel we can welcome two new members. We have a lot of outstanding
tickets and a few more hands would be really helpful!
