Ok, please stop now. The specific problem is gone now. He is out.

Generic problem, I guess we should make it clear to new commers (and everybody
else, for that matter) that bad commits without answers to comments will not be
tolerated from now on.

Do you think my proposed solution (add people with a sponsor) is good enough?

Of course, if some background checking proves problems that could be a reason
for not accepting the person in the team. Personally, I prefer to judge a person
based on the contributions I can scrutinize myself.

No, Miriam, he is right. Almost everybody was plainly silent. If that means that
we don't have active "senior members" than we are in big trouble. If we don't
have people doing active reviews on the commits, than we have a problem. If we
are accepting people in without taking responsability about that person, then we
have a problem.

We shouldn't accept people in just for the sake of having man power. We should
be able to handle a bad committer much faster than we did with gothicx-guest.

Ok, please stop. Under no circumstances I will stand and tolerate blame
shifting. If we are going to get to such a point in our life as a team, we might
as well disolve the team. I doubt anyone, including yourself, would go as low as
blaming others for a common failure.

I appreciate you raising your voice, now let's focus on a way to solve this issue.

You have been raised to the rank of admin :-) . No, this is not a way to say
"here, now let's see you do it better!". Instead is "I agree there are still few
of us and we still need help. Please help us!"

Ok, I agree with you. I don't want him again anytime soon, unless I see real
improvement (and that would mean a lot now).

I think Miriam was thinking further than this single case without stating that
