"As some of you know, we have a role in our process called a "Peer Reviewer". This role is critical - it helps ensure that the process is fair to both sponsor and developer, and also can help ensure that what gets built is consistant with what the Open Source community needs. We have also defined a new role: the "Spec Writer". In this role, you can help sponsors turn their high-level objectives into actual "Request For Proposals" for the sourceXchange site."
"Both of these roles require us to provide some degree of pre-validation - simply a check that the developer in these roles has some experience with Open Source software development. The developer doesn't need to have been working on the Linux kernel since 1991, or HTTP since 1989 - just long enough to probably know what they're doing when it comes to writing software and working with this community."
