This would be a good idea. But I'd first like to know why a lot of GNOME
Foundation members do not vote during the elections/referenda.
I asked the questions in January 2004 [1], but I did not get a lot of
answers (3 or 4, iirc).

What do people expect from being member of the Foundation? Sometimes,
I have the feeling that's "I can have a address". And nothing
else. Why? How can we change it? (or am I the only one who thinks we
should try to change this?)
