\subsection{Becoming a Developer}
To attain developer status, a contributor must demonstrate leadership skills,
commitment to SRCT principles, and technical ability. To become a developer,
a contributor (hereafter referred to as "prospective developer") should
notify the Executive Board of their desire to become a developer and present
a justification for gaining developer status. This justification should
include a brief history of the prospective developer's contributions to the
organization. Alternatively, a developer may nominate a contributor to the
Board and provide a similar rationale. The Board will review the rationale
and vote on whether to admit the prospective developer. If the Board votes
against admitting the developer, then the developer body (including the
members of the Executive Board) shall be provided with the prospective
developer's rationale and will have their own chance to vote, conducted
according to the rules of an official vote. If the developers vote to
admit the prospective developer, they shall be admitted without prejudice.
If the developers vote to not admit the prospective developer, then the
prospective developer shall not be given developer status, but may re-apply
in the future. No prospective developer may be voted on more than twice in
one semester.
\paragraph{Developer Selection Criteria}

following three criteria, with emphasis on the first two.
