Seeing about 10 membership requests on cvsl10n's queue right now, a decision
probably needs to be made soon, ensuring that people deciding to join our
project, actually _do_ join it before their patience gets exhausted. :-)

So what do we need to get this going? A few thoughts:

 1. Give sponsor access to all language coordinators and write a SOP for adding
    new people to a group on a wiki page.

 2. Some folks step up to give some love to the applications for languages
    without a maintainer and those which stay on the queue for more than a few

 3. Update the TQSG with the new instructions. Make the steps including
    self-introduction not optional.
