Hi8 Dennis

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.

This is one of the the subjective things Apache Foundation will need to
deal when working with a very popular software like AOO: The boundaries
exceed the technical environment. There's a whole and huge new world out
there.
