Maybe I missed discussion about this, but "membership dues" is concerning
to me - I think this project should continue to be driven by the people
who do the work, not the people who make monetary contributions.

As such, I wouldn't be in favor of individuals or organizations being
able to buy influence in the project.

I know there's a long history of people wanting to be able to give money
to the project to help with costs, and I'm fine with that as long as
membership and influence over the project isn't predicated on "he who has
the gold makes the rules".

You didn't miss it, we didn't really have it yet other then covering it at the conference in places, the current plan is rules for membership will remain the same as at the moment so people giving money won't have a general impact on decisions like this. They might give us money so the project can go and do something it hasn't done in the past but that's a completely different thing.
