guys, why is it suddenly a good idea to solve the potential problems
of a potential future with complicated rules and inter-hackerspace

i'm still on the don't try to fix problems that don't exist page!

if you're about to travel, having your friends introduce you to their
friends in other cities and countries is the way to go.

no one's gonna be friendly to you because of some international
bilateral contract, no matter how many pages long, but because you're
cool, and your friends have introduced you to us as being cool.

The more security-inclined hackerspace will see less interest in sharing the cost of a milling machine in a fab lab than sharing costs to have a group discount to a security conference (that mechanical fab geeks will be less interested in). Why risk having endless debates about the utility of a project that interest only half of the members when one could have a more flexible approach ?
