Re: Regarding Nirmal Kumar's Membership Application

I have a proposal for application_status.txt or in general for
applications. Seems like we don't note the applicant mail to
membership-committee mailing list untill it's rejected or approved. This
way we need to do same thing twice or more, we have to look for mailing
list everytime we need info while applicant is on investiation period.
We can always find them but maybe it's better to note the archive url to
application_status.txt in a new field or as an other tidier way, we
might start a new directory in applications directory and call it
'onhold'. We can create applicant files with their mails in the file as
in other directories. Then later when they are approved or rejected we
can directly move the files to appropriate directory. 

As an another proposal, I want to offer something about voting issue. I
propose that we should only wait negative votes on mailing list for
minor issues. And that time span should be like at most a week, my idea
is to keep it 3 or 4 days, which is fair enough time for everyone to
check their mails. The process is, when someone asked to list to do
something, only negative ideas should send oppositions to mailing list.
That would either lower the list traffic, also it makes things process
faster. What do you think about this? We are doing that on gnome-turk
mailing lists and it works great. Of course eloborations on the issues
should be send, but on default votes should be 'green' unless otherwise
is mentioned.

How to find out more about the status of his application ? Or should we
consider this mail (above) a fresh one and process it ?

There are some unprocessed applications. You can find them in
application_status.txt (in the gnome-foundation cvs module): they are
all the applications without a status at the end.

IIRC, I sent mails to know more about Nirmal Kumar to the people he
listed in his application and we received positive answers. You can
browse the membership-committee archives for more precise informations:

We should process his application (and the other old ones) as soon as
possible. For reference, I sent mails to know more about the applicants
for these applications:
      760 Benedikt Christopeit
      762 Jeroen Zwartepoorte
      764 Nirmal Kumar
The answers were positive in the three cases. However, in the past, we
did receive some not so positive feedback for Benedikt, so we might want
to ask some more questions. I think Jeroen and Nirmal should be

We can also accept "766 Christophe Fergeau *" since it's a renewal and
we always accept renewals.

All the other unprocessed applications (767 => 776) are waiting for some
love :-) You can find the mails that was sent as an application in the
mailing list archives.
