It is, but less than currently.

AFAIS (and with some simplification), there are - among others -
"Debian Developers" (as full members of the project) and "Debian
Maintainers" (limited to specific uploading rights).

To become a "Debain Maintainer", you just send your application to
this list. But to become a "Debian Developer", you have to go through
the "New Maintainer (!)" process. That doesn't make any sense at all
and is extremely confusing.
