The largest barrier seems to me that membership rights and responsibilities are not defined, (at least not publicly), nor is the process for obtaining membership.
"Membership" is a non-issue. It was only an issue in the old closed development days. The original reason for having members at all was so that XFree86 developers could be involved in the X Consortium's X11R6 development process back in 1994, and the X Consortium didn't allow for individuals to participate. There is no reason for a general XFree86 membership, and there hasn't been for a long time. The recent opening of the devel list and removal of member-only mailing lists eliminated the last "privilege" of membership. None of the general membership never had any formal voting rights anyway.
I'm at a loss as to why people even ask about XFree86 membership anymore.
