Re: [ #15316] GNOME Membership Application from Ciarrai Cunneen

Yes, Ciarrai's contribution to date has been usability testing through
Outreachy (May-August 2016). This was good work, and work that I view
as actionable to improve GNOME Settings, but this is Ciarrai's only
contribution so far.

But I'm not sure this is sufficient to deny Foundation membership. The
Foundation application doesn't set a clear bar, only "contributor"
which Ciarrai has met.

Quoting from the Foundation application page:

"Who is eligible for membership?
Per the GNOME Foundation’s charter, any contributor to GNOME is
eligible for membership. Although it is difficult to specify a precise
definition, a contributor generally must have contributed to a
non-trivial improvement of the GNOME Project. Contributions may be
code, documentation, translations, maintenance of project-wide
resources, or other non-trivial activities which benefit the GNOME

The form asks for name, email, past or recent contributions ("i.e.
Bugzilla, Mailing Lists, or commits"), and references. The form
doesn't ask for planned future contributions.

What has been the practice for other Outreachy interns who wish to join GNOME?

Hi all,

I know that Ciarrai did a good job with her usability testing internship,
but I'm not aware of any contributions outside of that. I think I'd be more
comfortable to recommend her if she had plans to make further contributions
within the project itself. Does anyone know if she intends to do this?
