Realistically speaking, we're hardly ever going to meet in person,
but online, because we are not all based in the same city. It might
make sense to make in-person meetings require a quorum and let IRC
meetings always be quorate.

Because otherwise, the people in Munich (where the Verein is based)
could pretty much do whatever they want, knowing that the rest of
the Verein will not be able to just travel to Munich.

I won't be opposed to it, but I really can't work any more on this
and we should no longer delay sending it in to the authorities…

I do not think it is possible for all members to all trust one and
the same other person.
