  This is vague:

    "To qualify for voting membership one must show a
     contribution to the Free Software movement."

     Reference: http://gnuherds.org/Charter#Membership

ie, "contributions" would be defined how, more precisely?

"contribution (work of author)" can still be anything.

btw, i wasn't criticizing the sentence but wondering if there were more specific guidelines to qualify/disqualify an entity.

Note: Neal commented that almost any entity would initially get approved its vote right due to the lack of such guidelines to qualify/disqualify.  That is something that could be improved. However the time in which such guidelines has been needed has not arrived yet.
