Hi Gainluca,

Well, we're now talking about *meaningful* contribution and 
evaluation... ;-)

That's an important step ahead.

On the wiki a read: "all these contributions need to be non-trivial and 
last for a certain time frame".

Then, there's a desperate need for a clear definition about what is 
*enough* to join TDF: 10 lines of code? A logo? 1000 work hours?

A too low entry level increases the risks of hijacking, a too high entry 
level hinder the growing of the Foundation.

In a two level acceptation process (contribution + evaluation of 
contribution by current members) it's fundamental, IMO, to set a level 
of contribution for membership that can be considered *consistent* in 
time and/or work and is *certain*.

Ok, so may we agree to the general idea to this process (contribute -> 
apply for membership -> contributions gets evaluated -> membership gets
approved or denied) but need to find a good definition what amount / time
of contributions qualify for acceptance?
