this is a very important point, for sure there is a link in the gnome
page, but the foundation itself is not well promoted, and you can get a
good promotion if you do for example cool or useful things.

yes this is very important too, as i see today there's a list of duties
and rights but are those enough?, as i see the membership must be
another way to contribute to GNOME, doing advocacy, helping hackers in
other tasks, and of course hackers should be members.

before to think about get more members foundation must decide what can
be offered for those members and what it want from them.
