This is really interesting. Two questions:
1) The page explaining membership talks about “people who represent entities and organisations”. Is this the kind of representation that requires a signature? Will what someone says be taken as the voice of their employer?
2) There is a whole list of “commitments” that members have, but there is no indication of whether this is “all of the below” or ‘any of the below”. For instance, I imagine not all representatives can be expected to “develop standard FAIRification tools”. More concretely: how much time do you expect members to have available for the project?
Can you please clarify?
