oh, best join request so far! You read the policy (!), you signed your
mail, you pointed us to your previous work and you have history of
contributions (and DM status, so no worry you will break our machines,
at least not on purpose)

I'd wait 2 or 3 more days in case someone
complains and hit the "add" button immediately...
