How do you get a mandate from a community with 10,000+ active members ?
Ultimately it needs to involve some form of voting.

However, the current system of requiring members of the community to become
members of the foundation before they can vote is not really working...

I don't know of any one who was ever excluded.

But I'm much more concerned about all the people who left because of (a)
the license change and (b) the stagnation that the project is experiencing.
