I am not in favour of this change. The point about a Debian Developer
is that the basis of their claim to the rights and responsibilities
enumerated in the constitution, is that they help develop Debian.
I don't think the word "Developer" implies that one can't develop
Debian in other ways than by directly editing software.
The word "member" is very weak and suggests that anyone might simply
choose to join and become a member.
