It is quite simple to explain:

- the funds from fellowship/supporters pay the salaries and other major
expenses (over 50% of the budget comes from fellowship/supporter donations)

- but the fellowship/supporters only have 2 votes in the GA (and none
after the change), although some GA members are also
fellowship/supporter members too
