Good idea and good topics you address. Some remarks:

approve 23 applications.
Minor point: I would say 'immediately approve'

This is indeed not the case. Everyone is welcome to contribute to
'is definitely not the case' (anyway, I hope so)
LibreOffice and TDF.
the next part is more about the process /merits on which members are
accepted. Is it that you want to say that on the one hand not each
contribution is a ground for membership and on the other hand the MC
will look to all possible contributions when deciding on an application?
And this can be done in various ways. Our bylaws
list some ways to contribute, but this list is not totally fixed. The
Membership Committee will also value other ways to contribute (we
envision that there are many other ways that we even did not think of yet).
So - everyone is welcome to contribute and the official membership is
our way to acknowledge these contributions.
