Any registered Ohloh user may apply to be a manager, however:
Only someone who works on the project and has a close connection to it should apply. Ideally the owner, founder, lead developer, or release manager.
Managers' email addresses are used by Ohloh to manage the application process, so email addresses must be accurate.
Managers should be willing to assume responsibility for updating and maintaining the project's information on Ohloh, including monitoring Ohloh's statistics and troubleshooting issues with code locations and Ohloh's access to project data.
If the project already has managers, they must approve new applicants.
