That is a good point, Christoph. Do you have a suggestion as to how to 
address this? We did run a membership drive that resulted in 250+ new 
members in the past months.

Frederik's point about these discussions emerging around elections is 
related, and just as valid. It is up to the board to do something with 
these discussions, but the membership equally has a responsibility to 
keep pushing topics that are important to them. It is a two way street.
