What I hear in the thread is that several people have an issue
with "memberhsip".

I have said that the term isn't perfect, but I want to be clear: I
still think it's a very good term, consistent, serves its purpose
well,

probably a little too general, so yes, ambiguous (but not to an unsuferable extend :-)

and generally very unambiguous. It seems like only Thomas and
Cornelius were objecting to this

How many people ar discussing anything on any list? compare to the wiki authors...

correct me if I'm wrong). In comparison to the amount of people that
have already applied, and/or others reading this, that's like a 2%
objection, if not less.

In french we say "comparaison n'est pas raison" - compare mean nothing. Applying to membership don't mean you approve the word.

but that it's also patently clear how we should proceed.

I present time it's probably too late/not necessary to change the word. I still think it's usefull to add some prefix to show who have real power and who have not (an ordinary member shouldn't have), but this can be done later

for example it's not at all clear here when do you write as a project member giving his opinion and when do you write as a board member with authority, so you should have some way (a special e-mail, but it can be anything else clear, for example a special signature) to show the difference.

Specially in this discussion, it looks too much like a "all against one" conflit, what I'm shure it's not. Nobody, I hope, discuss your implication in the project and it's good to have such people as you in the board :-))
