I agree that if there's a quick improvement to be made, and if we all agree
it's better, then we shouldn't delay it.

However, how about: NPM, as in New Project Member, instead of just NM,
which is the same as our old NM and leads to confusion?

Debian is not just a club with members, it's really a project we are all
working on... It would also work for non-uploading DDs. Non-uploading
DDs would then be DPM (Debian Project Members), and DDs would also
be DPMs (DD would mean they have upload rights).

We could keep "NM" (as in "New Maintainers") for people willing to
become DM, which then makes a lot more sense to me.

Just trying to start a brainstorming here, if you have better ideas,
please share. Please also share if you think my idea is wrong, silly,
or just a waste of time, I wont take personally ! :)
