Debian is so big and loosely knit that noone knows it all :-)

Oh, you really _are_ a developer.  Please consider joining Debian more 
formally: We need and want you, and I am sure you will enjoy it!

(I too thought of myself as "just a user" until someone in Australia 
stumbled upon an unofficial package of mine and pushed me to join)

Alos, consider joining IRC channels #debian-in and #debian-multimedia on 
OFTC.net :-)

Uhm, you tell me: You brought up the suggestion of collecting contact 
points: Please elaborate on the reasons you had originally.

...then I can perhaps help you realize that you are part of the cool 
gang you want to reach :-)
