The current organization for OE is a German eV legal entity (similar to KDE: http://ev.kde.org/) and is for the purpose of managing finances, voting, and membership.

An 'eV' for 'eingetragener Verein', in the German law, translates to a voluntary organization; a group of individuals who voluntarily enter into an agreement to form a body (or organization) to accomplish a purpose. The organization has members.

The OpenEmbedded eV statues are located here: http://docs.openembedded.org/organization/2008-11-22_statutes-de.pdf

A bablefish translation is here -- could German speaking folks please clean this up: OpenEmbedded eV Statutes

During FOSDEM 2008 in Brussels, Belgium, a group of founding members physically gathered to get the paperwork going.

Yes they are.

How do I become member of the OE e.V.?
Let an existing member introduce you by sending a short introduction to the 'ev' mailinglist. If you don't know one get in touch with us on the development mailinglist or IRC first. The e.V. is open for anyone to join and its not meant to be an exclusive club of a few developers.
