No one is being turned away, that I've noticed, but I really don't see
how anyone is supposed to follow along if they're not part of the team
already. I will say that the only Jira I've seen from outside recently
didn't exactly get a warm reception. [1] Not rejected, just radio silence.

I'm also sad to see that being held up as a standard by other mentors.
My understanding is that projects should be attempting to create a
community that is open, and trying to self-perpetuate. Sure, you can't
do that if you turn people away actively - but you also can't do that by
having conversations offlist and having an opaque process that newcomers
can't follow along with.

I'll say again - maybe my standards are improperly calibrated. If so,
and "not actively turning people away" is the standard we're going
for... that's disappointing as all heck.
