Yes, as the new wording is logically inconsistent.  *By definition* a Debian
Project Member, as the term is being used here, is someone who has voting

project members who upload and those who do not.

I strongly recommend reverting to the previous text.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
