It has recently come to attention that many of our contributors (and potential contributors) face issues with things like corporate firewalls blocking IRC, lack of permissions to send emails externally to things like our mailing lists, working outside of the standard workday office hours to attend community meetings, etc. Initial discussions around this topic have already begun. This discussion, however, would focus on gathering a base set of requirements needed to be a contributing member of the community. After gathering this base set of requirements and crafting it into a formal document, we could then present it to the Board of Directors to have it added to onboarding documents for new OpenStack Foundation sponsors, and have it added to the openstack.org site for easy reference for organisations interested in joining our community.
