By the way. Could we please use "gender" in db.debian.org?
I often translate English texts (Debian Weekly News) to Polish and that's
usually not so obvious that some name belongs to woman. 
That's even more problematic in Polish cause we're using different forms in
past for woman and man. 

This way we could also simply check how many women is involved in Debian
project ;)
