THIS were my answers why the numbers are 1 2 8 and not 123 or 241 or 85
or something similar ...
AND definitly NOT the reasons why the Foundation members voted for EUR
128 per year!

I also explained that I like the idea to propose a "binary membership
- because we are a computer driven NPO
- 128 is a multiple of 2
and also once again: The members of Fedora EMEA who attend the
foundation meeting elected 10 vs. 0 FOR that fee!
