Hi Tobias,

pretty trivial question, I did read about the emeritus membership (I
do read foundation-list), but does that count for renewals also? My
application is for a renewal, I've been a member since 2004 or
something. Back around then, I did stuff like Totem, GStreamer and
gnome-media. Since I started gradschool (sept '05) and subsequently
started working, I haven't done any direct GNOME-related work anymore,
rather just FFmpeg/Libav work and the WebM project (Google's video
codec). Both of these aren't directly under the GNOME umbrella, but
are free software and are used by GNOME.

I don't know the exact procedure around renewals, I just received an
email, which told me to do to this website where I could fill out an
application for membership (I didn't see any distinction on renewal
vs. original application). If I'm supposed to renew from "regular"
member to emeritus, then I probably want to do that, I'm not really

Contributions Summary:
In the past, I've directly contributed to GNOME, but since a couple of
   years, I've been more involved in other projects that are
   indirectly used in GNOME (and others),
So have you made any "non trivial contribution" to GNOME? Can you
provide any pointer at all (links to bugzilla, translations, promotion
at events, commits, people vouching for you, anything really that
contributes to GNOME)?

If you haven't had the time to directly contribute to GNOME but intend
to do that in the future, that's perfectly fine. We can then go for an
Emeritus Membership.
