+When a volunteer is willing to help with project approvals, we usually
+ask him to read this chapter.
+Then, we give him access to the Savannah 'administration' group, so he
+has access to @file{administration/lists/} in the CVS repository. He
+also has access to the other modules, but there is no real danger:
+each commit is logged thanks to commit_prep&log_accum, and changes
+have to be manually updated at Savannah to be taken into account.
+Being able to edit @file{pending_projects_to_keep.txt}, the volunteer
+can pick up projects to review. Once a project is reviewed, instead of
+sending it directly, he first send it to a ``veteran'' Savannah
+hackers. This will make double-work for those veteran in a first step,
+but it is worth the effort. Projects also have to be activated by the
+admins (that's a requirement from Savane). Once everybody feels
+confident in the volunteers skills (including himself), so usually
+when there are no more error or omissions in the project reviews, we
+grant him administrator privilege on project @file{administration}, so
+he can approve the project himself. Then, we trust him to do his job
+right, and he's a full now a real Savannah hacker, working on project
+Note to new volunteers:
+Savannah is a website with users, and we need to be very reactive. So,
+if your timetable ever change, please notify
address@hidden If you suddently do not have time for
+Savannah, nobody will blame you; however, please don't be
+silent. Moreover, people often forget to add address@hidden
+in carbon copy of their reply, so we do not even know if people
+answered your reviews.
+Even a small among of work, like 30-60mn per day, does help. We just
+need a regular work, so that pending submitters are not waiting for
+more than a week before to get a reply.
+So, please keep us informed about your current timetable, and if you
+do not have time, also send us the status of your project approvals,
+so we can take care of them.
