@jovuit, that’s a really thorough message, thank you for taking the time!
Yeah, I’ve heard the same thing from various people over the past few weeks. As you pointed out, the second option is more realistic, especially since we don’t have the financial resources to pay a salary.
Also, I have experience with the Auto-entrepreneur status, and to be frank, the overhead was quite small.
We’re heading in this direction, it’s good to see we’re on the same page. We’ll have a first draft for the statuses and CoC next week, since we have began to work with @gordon on this Hopefully, this will enable a productive discussion regarding how the foundation will work!
That’s an interesting point. I’ve take a note of this to ensure we come up with an acceptable solution.
Ideally, I’d like to open membership to anyone, with a free (or really low fee), because I don’t think money should be a barrier to entry in the collective. I don’t think contributors should have to be member of the foundation to work on the project, but whatever CoC we agree upon would apply to them though.
Depending on the price, it might be more interesting to take a yearly contract and move on to some more interesting tasks, because I assume contracting days can add quite some overhead. We don’t have to decide on that now though.
I’m voluntarily not answering to the last part of your message because I miss the time, but I will come back at it later!
