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 to go
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 ?
