I would expect that if someone received such a benefit from Debian (even
if indirectly), his/her name and approximate whereabouts should be made
public (or at least published to debian-private). If he/she doesn't want
his/her name to show up, he/she needn't apply (or accept the offer if
nominated by someone else).

After all, when they do receive that benefi, it is only fair for them to
 give something back to the Debian community. And it would be hard to
check wether they do give anything back to Debian if they were kept
