OSMF's work is mostly administrative and technical in nature.
Therefore it is not surprising (at least to me) that few people will
take much of an interest in joining - simply mapping sure is so much
easier. And heck, you can even take part in a working group or develop
important software without getting a member. I'm not aware of any
major campaign to convince mappers-at-large to join OSMF. The obvious
result is that membership is mostly limited to the few people
genuinely interested in administrative stuff and those who want/like
to influence politics and consider OSM a sufficiently interesting field.
