It's more than that; that's what the constitution refers to Debian
Developers as, so the NM process needs to use the same terminology.
Yes, the constitution refers to Developers as being _Project Members_.
I mentioned that yesterday already. Let me quote myself:
Also in the constitution there is clear reference to
developers=project members in 5.1.2
2. Lend authority to other Developers.
The Project Leader may make statements of support for points of
view or for other members of the project, when asked or otherwise;
So there is absolutely no problem shifting to a "Member" terminology
in the NM process, as long as it is documented as equivalent to
developer, according to the glossary _and_ to the constitution.
