Indeed, there is no strict need to be an official Debian developer in
order to contribute to D-I packages.

We have several DDs in what remains of the D-I team in order to do the
build/check/upload step of the work (ahem...."check" as much as
possible, which sometimes sums up to "well, let's be confident in that
change because I have confidence in that guy").

And commit access to the D-I git repo doesn't require to be an
official DD, just having an account on Alioth.
