One measure that I used was if the person said that they wanted to
contribute to Jabber in the "Why do you want to join" question yet had
listed nothing for anything above it like the mailing lists or code.
My reasoning behind that was that if you want to contribute then
contribute. You don't need to be a member to contribute. There's
nothing extremely special happening on this members list, unless
there's a level two membership that I don't know about.

I guess that kind of goes into what nearly equated into an automatic
yes for me. That was if I recognized the applicant's name. This
recognition was mostly built up from the lists too.
