Obviously you can't, currently.

You aren't the first to see a potential problem with the current equation of DD'ship
with Debian project membership.  It's hard to predict whether this will ever change.
If you think that it should change then nothing is stopping you from making the
suggestion here.  It's up to the members to decide whether they want to implement
such change, though.  (It's a bit of a catch-22, since existing members are less
likely to see the exclusivity of Debian as a problem.  However, you always have the
option of participating in some other project, such as Ubuntu, which does recognize
contributions other than package maintenance.)
