I don't think Sun should order their people to join. They should join
when they feel like they are part of the GNOME project and want to be
members. If I see a flood of Sun registrations tomorrow, I will be
dismayed and worried.

I think the reason you see so many Helix and Eazel (and Red Hat)
people is that these companies have been involved in GNOME for a long
time and many people there feel like part of the community.

We have the GNOME Foundation advisory board for company
representation, foundation members and board members officially only
represent the project and themselves.
