Dear Inkscape Contributors,
it's time to make your Inkscape Membership official!
With that come voting rights for all kinds of regular contributors - like translators, social media managers, forum moderators, documentation writers, testers, bug managers, ... - (not only developers anymore!).
The first occasion we will be using that for is the Contributor Vote for the ongoing About Screen Contest (contributor voting starts tomorrow, and will end on April 9, 23:59 UTC, there will be a separate email for that!), which is also going to be a bit of a test of the membership system for the upcoming Inkscape PLC election.
Read all about it here:
If you have any questions or are looking for people to confirm your membership request, please ask away in the #general rocket.chat channel. In some cases, it will be helpful to state the nature of your contributions to the project, or to approach those directly who know about your contributions.
Please approve membership requests of those whom you know to be a contributor by first hand experience, and do not approve other membership requests, as in the worst case, when the person is not a contributor, that can get your own membership revoked.
Thank you to the PLC and the SFC for getting that set up for us, to the website team for providing infrastructure for it, and to the Vectors team for writing about it!
