Thanks Johan!!!

The idea is that we do not know. We are prospecting to see if this is worth the pain (I believ it does but chekcing is always better).
I thought that the english ('subject to the conditions for membership') wanted to say that depending on the condition 
so may be I should change the letter to make this part clearer.

Our goal is to build a legal infrastructure that will be able to sustain the development of Pharo and improve its future. As an example, we would like to be able to collect funds (ways as to be determined - we foresee a membership model or moral license) to pay engineering tasks to be performed such as improving the virtual machine, network libraries, better JIT support. To make it short we would like to give a chance to our community to grow and structure itself so that Pharo can get stronger and that risk (truck factor) gets minimized.
