Currently we are in the process of setting up a eV legal entity (similar to KDE: http://ev.kde.org/) to manage the finances, voting, and membership.
An 'eV' for 'eingetragener Verein', in the German law, translates to a voluntary organization; a group of individuals who voluntarily enter into an agreement to form a body (or organization) to accomplish a purpose. The organization has members.
During FOSDEM 2008 in Brussels, Belgium, a group of founding members physically gathered to get the paperwork going.
The founding members are:

- process for adding new members
- process for voting
- responsibility of the board
- conflict resolution
- are contributions tax deductible?
