In itself the process worked, although I don't know if asking the 
AdminGroup is a good suggestion. We could add something like:

  - If you have not received a reply after 3 days, verify in the
    mailinglist archive that your mail arrived on the list and see if there
    weren't any replies to the list.

  - If your mail arrived on the list and you did not get any response,
    contact person1 or person2 to make sure we can fix this as soon as

to the process:


Would that be a better process ?

Can I rewrite that section of the Wiki to make it a bit more inspirational 
and exciting, I hate to discourage or loose any potential contributor 
because the process is heavier than it ought to be. So a bit of 
excitement can't hurt.

I would also like to add some links eg. where to create a login, a link to 
the archive, etc...
