Subject: [chairs] Re: observers vs prospective members


I'll look into this. When we designed this functionality we tried to 
keep it as simple as possible so we re-used the observer role that we 
already had. I'll see if it will be possible to do a query for 
propsective members.

Yes, the observer role is meant to cover the eligible lurkers.
