Re: Third call for votes for the debian project leader election 2006
How can someone who is not a package maintainer become a
developer, if becoming a developer requires being a maintainer?
The 'Maintainer' in NM is a misnomer, I understand it is possible
through NM as a translator or documentation writer.
How many non-maintainers are actually official developers ?
I think that is the question.
Considering the huge contribution from translation/documentation
groups, if they are under-represented in the developer group it means
there is a problem.
The upload right that is given to an official developer comes from
the necessity to have package maintainers do their jobs.
What would be the equivalent tool/right for translators/document
writers. Would they need/want absolute upload rights ?
