I far prefer indirect membership by mem bership in a specific team which 
recognises the basis of your contribution. Say we have a well-governed 
doc-team, and we make that a sub-team of ubuntumembers. Then, if you are 
a participant in the doc team, you are a member. That makes sense to me.

The alternative, having people BOTH in MOTU *and* in ubuntumembers, is 
just a recipe for loose ends. So I would rather that there are teams 
which are well run which recognise a significant and sustained 
contribution in some or other domain - and that membership in those 
teams confers Ubuntu membership.
