Re: Third call for votes for the debian project leader election 2006
Considering the huge contribution from translation/documentation
groups, if they are under-represented in the developer group it means
there is a problem.
I don't know, I do know that even though I've been doing
over 3 years I still haven't bothered with NM as I didn't need the
rights, and didn't care enough about the voting rights.
Ok, so let's consider people who care :)
But another hint for considering that uploading rights and voting
rights have no reason to come as a set.
I strongly suspect the same goes for most non-maintainer translators,
especially since a lot of them don't seem to know that it's
become a DD without being a maintainer.
That is correct.
Checking the NM pages now I find that:
- the new maintainer corner () specifically mentions
acceptible earlier contribution.
- the Tasks and Skills section on , is missing a description of
necessary for translators. Same at 
That is correct to.
Now, consider a place where the right to vote is given exclusively to
people who contribute in a very specific way that excludes 99% of the
people who actually contribute :)
