Don't forget that some FAS groups are attached to access to things.
This definitely raises the barrier for entry, which is one reason that
we suggest getting involved with the people (list, IRC, etc.) first.
The interface could probably make it a bit clearer that we don't expect
a new account holder to go applying for a ton of groups before doing
anything else. Maybe I should file that as an enhancement?
