In the _many_ criticisms that MJ Ray has rolled out recently, this is one of the few that holds any water IMO, but as Henning has correctly spotted, the intent was to allow a vote to any DD who lives in the UK, unless they stated that they didn't want to be involved. On reflection, I think we should ensure that the wording makes it clear that one has to express an interest in membership in order to be considered a member. I'll start a thread to that effect back on the debian-uk list. Cheers, Phil.
