Ugh, I hope I misread this. If the foundation or any other instituation ever 
influences the Zope 3 development process, I will not contribute any more. I 
rather have ZC-centric development platform and the freedom to choose what to 
do for a release (in agreement with the other Z3-core developers) than a 
vender-independent foundation with a foundation-driven development cycle.

Also, I agree with Andreas and Philipp that developers should be members, not 
companies. Otherwise, how could I, as an independent developer, have a say? 
BTW, this is also positive for companies, since they can have several 
developers being members. In the proposed scenario, my one-man shop would 
have a lot of power compared to larger companies, such as ZC, Nuxeo, etc.
