[Members] Why I did not reapply ...

Ok, here comes a fancy solution. :)

It would be nice to have an IM account where a bot attends user requests
to become members. The bot presents a form to the user (if the client
doesn't support data forms rendering then a one-by-one question is going
to be presented) so that users can create new subscription requests,
update their requests or even delete their requests. This way we may
have an automated solution that btw shows how much cool XMPP could be.
We just need someone to implement this fancy idea (if people loved it).

As for the last members call I think that if people tried to become
members and there was a technical problem that prevented people from
applying then we may consider identifying those people and maybe give
them a second chance. Anyway, I think that we should first check if this
type of solution is fine with the JSF rules.
