I would be very surprised if we don't have the bank account set up by christmas (although it's out of our control how long the co-op takes to process the application); as soon as we have the bank account we'll start processing the membership applications received so far, and any applications received after then should get processed very quickly. As Thomas says, if you don't want a cheque hanging around until the bank account is open, then the best thing to do is wait for the bank account to be opened and then send us your application. With respect to donations to the WMF counting towards membership: we are currently a completely separate company/charity from them, and even once we have a signed chapters agreement we'll still fairly remain separate. Membership (of any type/kind) of Wiki UK Ltd / Wikimedia UK shouldn't depend in any way on donations to the WMF.
