Fyi, I have just be emailed to say that I can vote to the Wikipedia  
Foundation Board of Trustees. I have never given them any money and  
have never consciously signed up to any foundation. I would strongly  
support a move to this sort of membership before the 2010 OSMF AGM.

The rules for voting for the Wikipedia Foundation are explained as  

"You may vote from any one registered account you own on a Wikimedia  
wiki (you may only vote once, regardless of how many accounts you  
own). To qualify, this one account must:

     * not be blocked; and
     * not be a bot; and
     * have made at least 600 edits before 01 June 2009 across  
Wikimedia wikis (edits on several wikis can be combined if your  
accounts are unified into a global account); and
     * have made at least 50 edits between 01 January and 01 July 2009.
