Debian Proposal to Make Non-packaging Contributors Debian Developers too

Debian project leader Stefano Zacchiroli has proposed that in the future Debian Account Managers should accept as Debian Developers those who aren't package maintainers.

Currently all Debian Developers maintain a Debian package.

According to Zacchiroli's proposal, Debian Account Managers are invited to "endorse the idea that contributors of non-packaging work might become Debian Developers, albeit without upload access to the Debian archive."

Debian Account Managers should also "establish procedures to evaluate and accept contributors of non-packaging work as Debian Developers."

Also, Zacchiroli's proposal would result in the creation of the "appropriate technical measures to enable contributors of non-packaging work, who get accepted as Debian Developers, to participate in Debian decision making and to access Debian infrastructure."
