are there any docs which explain the details (dues, rights, election 
terms, decicion-making processes) of the membership? If not yet, can 
such a document please be put on the wiki?

There's less info about the foundation available. The main info is that 
one year is bout 15GBP. Before people spend the money, they probably 
want to know what their money buys.

Further, it's a UK foundation. As OSM is an international project, what 
legal issues does this rise for members outside the UK?

HTH & best regards,
