Of if you do, please add an explanation of why it is relevant to the group. A short paragraph on what the Account Chooser is, why it is interesting, etc... can help put things in context. Your mail sounded like you were saying that Tim Bray & Noam Berstein were joining this group. That they are joining other groups is of very little interest to this group I would say, as most people including me here have probably no knowledge at all of the politics of that group, what it means for people to join that group - are they just listening? are they there to write some blog post? are they there as figureheads to attract people? Does it really matter at all if they join? Perhaps that project is on its last legs and they were asked to give it a breath of life? - And really I don't care about the people joining and not jointing groups.... I am on a lot of groups, I wish I could follow, but don't always get time to .

Tim is already quite known in the Internet developer community (see his wikipedia entry and Blog).  In addition to working on Account Chooser, he will also be involved in our other OpenID & OAuth efforts.  He is also going to be attending the upcoming IETF (which conveniently for him is near where he lives in Calgary).
