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


yes the standard procedure for an intern is to ask them to wait a bit
before applying so that we can make sure they are still contributing.

While we base membership decisions on previous contributions, my
understanding is that there's an expectation that members will be active
contributors during the period of their membership. My only concern is to
establish that Ciarrai will contribute to GNOME for a prolonged period.

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

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
comfortable to recommend her if she had plans to make further
within the project itself. Does anyone know if she intends to do this?
