for me you have just prooved how narrow minded you are.
Offering a second language meeting makes the conference more international, not less.
It's not our fault that you don't understand German. It is our effort to speak acceptable English.


About money for membership

I don't feel comfortable to change the right to vote for the foundation to how many nodes one has uploaded.
For example, I have spent 9 weeks with a terribly broken leg in front of my laptop working on the wiki without a single track upload, and many developers will support the community aswell without tracks.

How many lines of code or wiki are worth a node?

Sorry, I can not agree that this is easy to measure.
