Have you thought about splitting the membership into voting and
non-voting groups?  You could have the voting membership as devs et al
who have applied for voting rights (to address the quorum concern), but
also sell non-dev (and therefore non-voting) membership to users &
companies?  It's easier to get companies to give you money in return for
something they can advertise (hey, look, we're a Gentoo Foundation
Member!) than to simply get out the begging bowl.

(Btw, where and how do I sign up for membership?)

Best regards,
