Great!  I'll test with a new applicant from zero and send comments.

I'll take a stab at some of it, but we can define that as we go along.

New Member Application

SPI membership application submitted successfully on 2001-07-25. Your
application ID is 90.
You should receive a confirmation email at the
email address that you specified in the application.  Please reply to
this mail to confirm your application for membership.  Once this mail
is received by SPI, your application for non-contributing SPI membership is
...add return to application page and SPI homepage links.

- is there a 'DELETE APPLICANT' button somewhere?
- nils lohner2 has only a non-contrib membership, but has an expiration
  date of 2002-07-25... non-contribs should have 'never' as expiration.
- on the nmstatus page, there are checkboxes for application manager and
  contrib member.  I can select them and hit 'update' but it doesn't
  change anything.
- is it possible tp have an NC application date and a contrib
  application date, and then also the email check confirm date and the
  contrib acceptance date?  Also, why is this page titled 'last
  application details' ?  Wouldn't 'application details' make more
- again, in the membership status page the expiration date should be
  never for all non-contribs.

- woah.  When I apply for contrib membership I just get the 'application
  submitted' page; I don't get asked for the information which I need to
  supply.  Going back to the details page shows contributions as 'f' and
  lets me choose my application manager (listbox) but there's no update
  button.  So: there's no place to fill in the needed info.

That's all for now.  Anyone else have comments etc?
