I guess with bruce has contributed enough to GNOME to become a member, given
the policy on that (advocacy counts AFAIK).  So I don't think this would be
problem (though I guess he should then become a member:)

  hey beavis .... huh-huh-huh ... he said member ... huh-huh-huh

Though I guess it could become an issue if someone put in a nomination for
himself and could not actually become a member of the foundation by the
current policies.
