I absolutely agree 100%. We are completely open to accepting new members
into the contributor group.

Absolutely not!  Existing non Autodesk contributors include Mateusz,
Haris and myself.  To become a contributor the normal practice is to
contribute code as patches via Trac so that existing commiters can
it before applying.  Once we (the existing contributors/PSC) are
with your understanding of FDO it is reasonable to become a committer.
you are interested do let us know though as it might not occur to anyone
to propose it.
