Hasn't been such a specific post in ages that I remember. Instead, 
SOC folk are invited after a single contribution rather than folk 
who've been around for years.

Today, of course, there's no tracker for someone new to "show what 
they can do" with. But that's a separate issue. A few weeks (months?) 
ago, someone suggested just putting up any new tracker and having the 
community back-fill the old data. Lot's of agreement on that being a 
good idea. Still no progress though.

But I've submitted patches to the old tracker. Some were accepted. 
Others ignored. But hey, I've been around long enough to have posted 
patches to the old tracker.

Yep, seen that myself. I've submitted patches. I've submitted new 
features. I frequently post bug reports from recent CVS checkins. 
Apparently, YMMV.

You tell me.
