Ah, indeed. It does use member in a couple of places, a quick grep

Yes please.

Personally I don't think we need separate terms for voting member with
uploading rights and those without such rights; in the few cases where
the difference matters, it's easier (I think also better) to spell it
out rather than having yet another Debian specific term.

But we can discuss that when the issue comes up on -vote.
