What would be different between the two different statuses? Can all vote
for the board? (since that is basically all your membership entitles you

I was thinking in these ways too but then I figured that the non-active
group could just as well not be part of the foundation and when they
reactivate themselfs they can renew there application and get membership

If the second (non-active) group would just be something on paper we
could just aswell call it hall-of-fame or something.

I think some kind of hall-of-fame would be nice though, for those that
have really pushed the platform forward. And if so I think this
should/could be decided by the board rather than a membership vote.
