I agree that "title" might not be appropriate. Thats why I primarily
talked about "stages" (maybe there is a better word...), which should
somehow reflect the knowledge and the contribution to the project.
Today, there is only "Developer". They have @debian.org email
address, they can upload packages, they have voting rights etc.
At the Apache Software Foundation, for example, there is the
"Committer" wo has write access to one or more CVS/SVN repositories,
and who also has an @apache.org email address. But no voting rights.
For Debian, for example, the permission to upload packages should still
be restricted to the most experienced people (Developers) who
can review the package quality.
