the next part is more about the process /merits on which members are
accepted. Is it that you want to say that on the one hand not each
contribution is a ground for membership and on the other hand the MC
will look to all possible contributions when deciding on an application?

Hmm .. not exactly. It is more my point, that we have a list of
contributions that establish merit. But there are possibly more ways to
contribute (we cannot even name yet) and the MC will consider those ways
as well.

Any better words for that?

The words are fine, but I think I get a bit confused by the way you connected the two parts. (And the biased interpretation word 'indeed' before). I think it is OK to just start a new line with:

Contributing to The Document Foundation/LibreOffice can be .... etc etc

                    And this can be done in various ways. Our bylaws
list some ways to contribute, but this list is not totally fixed. The
Membership Committee will also value other ways to contribute (we
envision that there are many other ways that we even did not think of

So - everyone is welcome to contribute and the official membership is
our way to acknowledge these contributions.
