Let's make a voting to onboard 4 new 'approved' members (alphabetically)

Particpated at nearly all meetings and took over work on tests
Joined 60% of the meetings and made numerous contributions
contributed to the documentation several times, took over tests
took over work on the project pages

Additionally, when adjusting the list, we should withdraw nb and mhoungbo for the time being. I tried several times to get in contact via mail and via IRC with no avail. We will reverse that should they come forward and want to collaborate.

As a reminder:
We are a "Working Group" which is a special team with special procedures and requirements regarding commitment. See Governance Charter for Server Working Group. For a successful voting, we need at least 3 positive and 0 negative votes within 14 days after start.
