We are members of the project, but we are called Debian Developers.
That's the title that the constitution uses, and the NM documentation
should use the same terms when it's refering to the position. [If it's
refering to them in pasing, calling them members of the project is
just fine, but doding otherwise is just going to lead to even more
confusion than we have currently.]

intoxication level up and down at will, instead of being caught on a
relentless down escalator to bargain basement philosophy and the
parking garage.
