pcurran commented on JCPNEXT4-60:
---------------------------------

Perhaps define Affiliate Member as someone who can be a Contributor to a JSR. 
(Don't define it in terms of being "new")

Class of membership, targeted at individual developers who wish to 
participate as Contributors but who do not wish to make the full commitment 
of participating as members of Expert Groups...

> In v7 of the Process Document (not yet published) these two terms are 
> defined as follows:
> _Affiliate Member:_ An individual who is unwilling or unable to sign the 
> JSPA but who instead signs an Affiliate Membership Agreement in order to 
> participate in the activities of the JCP.
> _Affiliate Membership Agreement:_ The membership agreement signed by 
> Affiliate Members.
> As written, these definitions are circular (an Affiliate Member is someone 
> who signs an Affiliate Membership Agreement while an Affiliate Membership 
> Agreement is the agreement signed by an Affiliate Member.)
> Plus, it would be preferable to define *Affiliate Member* in terms of what 
> it is rather than what it is not (why someone would sign it rather than why 
> they do not sign the JSPA).
