Hi Jaromil,

We've done some work in this area at the Sounds Expo trade shows, 
talking to companies like RME, and also to companies who now use Linux 
in their products, e.g. Korg.

I guess if they've got something to contribute, I don't see why not. 
Trade organisations often have an 'entry bar' so they don't have to deal 
with small outfits, such as a high annual fee - I don't see why 
linuxaudio.org should have that, given that some people give a great 
deal of their own time even though they don't have much money to spare.

The formal structure is laid out in the Policy document:


Ico serves as the current Director. However most decisions seem to get 
made informally, by consensus.
