With the last months the community around LibreOffice and the Document Foundation worked hard to establish policies, processes, infrastructure and all the things you need to deliver a high quality software. One of our basic principles is that we will acknowledge this merit and allow all the contributors to become official members of our community. All members will have the right to run for a seat in the Foundation's board of directors, elect the board and drive the future of our projects.
From now on all of you can apply for membership via our webform  . The membership committee is eager to receive your applications.
Please help us to process your request quickly. Read and follow the form's introduction carefully, provide a good description of your contributions and list at least two contacts who can confirm your contributions.
The TDF Membership Committee,
