Clinging to sanity, Florian Effenberger mumbled in his beard:
[... wants to become a DD ...]
IANADD myself. But from reading mailing lists, I think the sentiment of many
is that getting an account on the Debian machines should be a question of
'is it necessary for your work'?
Package maintainers do need an account to do packaging work. Most others do
not need an account - IIRC commit access to many cvs/subversion/whatever
repositories is not coupled to an account. Of course, threre are grey areas
where perhaps an account is not strictly necessary, but might simplify some
tasks (bug triage: direct access to the bug database, to name an example).
What else does one get when one becomes a developer? Most (all, except the
DPL whois elected to do so?) DDs will not speak in the name of the Debian
project. Of course, if you're going to build an advocacy/marketing group
for Debian (which would certainly be a good idea, IMHO.), this topic has to
be reviewed again.
