Hi!

Thank you very much for working on this! It is badly needed.

The current way to be come a member of the Alpine Linux team (and hoe
to get expelled) is described here:
http://lists.alpinelinux.org/alpine-devel/6025.html

That is the procedure I have tried to follow when we give new members
git push access, and we have at least at two times given official
warning about expulsion.

There is also a definition of Non-technical member status.
http://lists.alpinelinux.org/alpine-devel/6024.html

So my main question is, what of the current procedures do we want keep
and what do does this teams proposal change?

Could we include or combine the two above "docs" into the new official
documentation?

Also, I don't want to slow down the process, so how do we move forward?
