When will you be specific?

Are you concerned about the iCLA?  

That doesn't stop most people from helping on ooo-users or other lists.  It is not a condition
for contributing to the Forums.  It is not a condition for submitting bug reports.  It is
a condition for submitting work that is extensive enough to constitute intellectual property.

For what specific purpose do you find an iCLA is required (or election as a committer, beyond
that) that is objectionable to you?  

I don't think the iCLA matters to most people in the community that you are interested in
and it will not arise as a requirement.

Wanting root access to a server in the Apache Infrastructure is a different story.

Please do not over-generalize.

Until you make specific, actionable requests, there is going to be no constructive movement

Just to be clear:

Do you need to fill a form when you decide to help a friend or someone
unknown? Most of people don't think they need. So, some of us will submit
their requests for contributors. Some will not. But they will continue
spread the " cause" and supporting enthusiastically AOO. They will need
support and acceptance.
