We are in the process of discussing a variety of constitutional amendments
to be raised by the tech-ctte that will hopefully end up creating a sort
of bundle of constitutional fixes to vote on.  Perhaps it would be good to
include in that a terminology standardization on member for the places in
the constitution that we refer to voting project members rather than
specifically people who upload software.
