Bug#380458: developers-reference: "Debian Developer" and "Debian Maintainer" confusion

Package: developers-reference
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The "Developers Reference" for Debian uses the terms "Debian Developer"
and "Debian Maintainer" in an interchangeable manner in many places.

This is mostly OK since a "Debian maintainer" could be a non-DD
who maintains packages.

But, in section 2.3 paragraph 4 (and other places) it mentions that a
NM applicant needs to have their GnuPG key signed by an existing
*Debian maintainer*.  In this case it ought to say "Debian developer".

Patch attached.
