Every time I see a membership request I am reminded that I kind of
pushed dr johnson into taking on that responsibility, he didn't
volunteer. I belatedly apologize to brother johnson for that.

Sounds reasonable to me +1
Speaking only in regard to the bugzappers, a change like this has been
long overdue. People join the bugzappers without mentor-ship or
guidance (beyond the wiki info). That is un-fair to the people that
join as well as the project itself.

My only concern would be people losing their voting privileges, as
long as that doesn't happen I am on board.
