Oh right, I am still surprised some people continue reading after the line:

 - need to be able to deal with all the existing team members :)

in the same email.

I am sure more than 5 people would apply and they would be rejcted without
even reading their motivations if it were not by Ganneff.

Yeah, it is an improvement over the past but...
Do you really think we need proccess for stuff like that? I think people
wanting to help in a core team like ftpmaster, after some time helping here 
and there, with some constructive work, should be allowed in such teams.
The sad part here is they^whe had to send a mail asking people to work there
and adding such crappy caveats.
