Simplify all of this: entirely waive requirements on members except that they have to show up and that the meeting can vote on new members; membership (like all decisions of the meeting, it's already in the bylaws) is effective *after* the meetings, so new members don't have voting power in their first meeting. * membership doesn't get you any tangible benefits, so accepting new members only once a year is no problem. * if anybody cares enough about Debian to know about where the meeting is to be held, I guess he's welcome. We still have the right to vote down gatecrashers. * de-emphasises the distinction between DD/DM/non-formal-people-who-work- on-Debian. And I don't think that we want to put the ability to fund travel for this purpose in the bylaws, but I agree that we probably should fund travel for "interesting" people (as defined by the board) if they otherwise wouldn't/couldn't join. cheers -- vbi
