I would add usability for all and ease-of-getting started for new and
casual users to the list of gimp goals.

Is this required to be in person, or is conference call/irc/email/etc
sufficient?  Furthermore, is it possible for board members to be
reimbursed for expenses?  I can see this being a major obstacle for non-us
residents otherwise.

In my mind one of the major reasons to have a Gimp Foundation is to put
all of our IP ducks in a row.  As I've said before I don't think that
having contributors sign over copyright to TGF would be the best plan.
Instead, I would like to see the ability to give TGF power-of-attorney to
sue copyright violators in their behalf.
