[ Re: Unicode Consortium Membership]
Message ID:
Just a note, for anyone who's interested, that I'm thinking about getting Perl

full voting rights, but that is prohibitively expensive.

I'm certainly interested in pursuing this.  We should certainly talk 
about it, and I do think you are correct.  Furthermore, donations to
fund this are a Great Thing, and make it more possible.
