Fully agree. Compare the OpenStreetMap Foundation. They have about
30,000 active contributors, aka community members, but around 250
or so active foundation members. Membership is formally

That's what I meant.

Informal membership and right of vote are things that don't sound
well in the same sentence.

And a formal membership should include something more that simply
having contributed.

I like to understand but I still don't get the point here.

Reading The OpenStreetmap Membership paragraphs I see:

You can help and support us by becoming a member of the OpenStreetMap
Foundation. The membership fee is £15 per year and enables you to
influence the direction of OpenStreetMap by being able to vote in
elections for officers of the foundation.

This just means that I can "buy in"? I agree, that this is definately formal - but how does this help have the foundation act in favour of it's projects?

Still - I try to understand.
