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
Still - I try to understand.
It is not important an entry fee, but IMO it should exist a stronger
filter for members' acceptance.
In another branch of this thread, I was discussing with Charles a two
a) contribution by the applicant;
b) evaluation of that contribution by current members before acceptance
of membership for TDF.
Under point a), the contribution should be "consistent" in contributed
time and work (not too high, not too low entry level) so that applicants
can be creamed off and risks of hijacking decreased.
Under point b), the evaluation should not, IMO, be merely technical
(i.e. a patch is refused) but it should include a "judgment of
opportunity" about membership.
It would be a compromise between a fully free membership process and a
completely discretionary one.
