Hum, i'm trying to solve an existing problem actually. I'm not suggesting international
bilateral contracts, just writing down some thoughts that I have discussed with several
people. And the scope is really limited to Dutch hackerspaces, which is nice and easy
to oversee (.nl is a really small country and basically everyone in the community knows
everyone else).

The existing problem is that there are more than a handful of people who want to support
the local hackerspaces movement, which is currently upcoming in our small country, but
don't want to commit to one specific hackerspace.

Instead of letting that pool of support go to a waste because it is not accommodated,
i want to create conditions for that potential support to convert into real support.
