I disagree with that approach, Ximian:

We do not in this team have any rules for membership that one must first 
prove her worth by packaging outside of Debian, not that they must use 
their spare time doing so!

I am concerned if people requesting to join are fully aware what it is 
they join, which is why I asked about that.  But I see nothing wrong 
with approving people we don't know well.

We must recognize that we have little security fencing the assets of 
this team, and treat them accordingly (double-check what you pull, sign 
changes you make, etc.).  Making it harder to join this team does *not* 
help secure our assets!
