   What about non-developper users ? Shouldn't they have a word to say,
   even if they can't or do not have the time to contribute with code ? 

They should have `a word to say', and they do--they can subscribe to
Debian lists and give their feedback and advice, which developers are
free to follow or ignore.  But they do not, and should not, IMO, have
the privilege of voting or otherwise setting policy.  Users are not
developers and shouldn't presume to be.
