Confusion is common: http://wiki.debian.org/Maintainers#disambiguation

The less ambiguous term to use is Debian project members.

Historically being member of Debian meant maintaining packages - but 
today you need not be member to do that, and other tasks qualify for 
membership in Debian.

If you want to vote in Debian and are involved in translation, PR, 
documentation, artwork or some other aspect of Debian than packaging, 
please do consider yourself invited to join as well!
