Yes, a different discussion, but I really think that Debian is in need, or
it will be sooner or later, of a more wide spectrum of skills than coding,
and being Debian a kind of horizontal organization, everyone should enjoy
the same rights.
Particularly there exist people who make a leaving organizing people from
different cultures efficiently around very big projects. My sister is an
anthropologist who does just that for a big transnational company. I guess
it must exist people with this kind of skills willing and eager to
colaborate with Debian, providing that they are treated with fairness.
