And this would help us clearing a bit the DesignService queue at the

For a large number of people in the group I don't remember seeing *a

Considering the power allowed, it make sense to require some kind of

has contributed in the past to an external Fedora oriented site, has 
contributed to another Fedora project sounds like acceptable credentials
