Yes, when a member requests membership, it is shown in the "Removing
User(s) from Group" list along with other members, so you can remove
him as a pending user. You can see that he doesn't appear in the "Set
Permissions" page, nor in the "Project Memberlist" one.

As far as database is concerned, the user is added to your group, but
as pending, so he is 'part' of the group, but the Savane software
consistently avoid taking pending users into accounts.

If you think that's not clear and could be improved, I suggest you
send a bug report at :)
