10 GBP. If it's too much, they can ask for a waiver. And there's just some
decisions that just have to be made by the OSMF. And the Board is elected.
There's plenty, if not most, of OSM that is done by consensus. OSMF doesn't
decide what or how anyone maps.
Anyhow, I still think not just asking, but showing some options, is going to be
the most effective. Working code is even more effective.

I think consensus is a bit different than "lets put the search box
10px to the right and 20px down."
Seeing what features people want on the front page makes more sense.
There is really nothing that stops non-OSMF contributors from joining
OSMF. Not sure how that makes them accountable. I suppose some can't
afford it, but I doubt that is the reason of the majority.
