Feels very anti-democratic to link voting rights to a fee.
It wouldn't be linked to only the fee (which is supposed to be symbolic anyway) but to the usual responsibilities and duties that come with voting rights.
Meaningful contribution to the project outside of a fee should be rewarded with voting rights too.
The voting right is not only linked to the fee but to mainly to the work done. The fee is supposed to be symbolic, as in low enough to not hinder anyone.
All money paid as a membership fee will be tax deductible and we'll be able to e.g. buy conference tickets with it without paying VAT
People could also donate to the nonprofit to get the taxes friendlier
Tax deductibility is likely going to be ineligible, or difficult, in countries outside the EU unless a local branch is created.
It could be very complicated to collect the money from all the different countries.
This could be manageable with payoneer which has not too high payment fees
This provides a motivation for inactive members to leave
A simple cron job (or the human equivalent; every board meeting, for example) to remove inactive people would be enough to maintain a lean member list.
There is a gray area of people that are kinda active but maybe not enough to keep the maintainer status.
An automated system shouldn't remove the member, but rather give us a list to start with.
