The problem is more one of 'how do we identify those people that aren't
a Developer, but that do contribute regularly'. Since Debian votes are
conducted through GPG-signed mails and regular contributors aren't part
of the Debian web of trust, this is more than a convenience issue. Note
that Debian Developers without an active key in the keyring can't vote,

If you have a fix for that problem, I don't see why we shouldn't support

Fun will now commence
