I read on the wiki that the association members are expected to attend
general assembly meetings, which I understand are to take place in some
physical location. Missing two of these meetings in a row is reason to be
stripped of "active member" status.

Would this not make it harder for people in certain geographical regions
(say, outside Europe or France) to become an association member, even when
they spend a lot of their free time dedicated to the project? Right now it
seems biased towards locations with the most board members (France).
