Hi Clytie,
from my perspective there are various strata to the Debian world:
people who help on debian-* mailing lists, people who help on #debian-*,
people who help with translation, people who evangalize debian, people
who sell debian branded merchandise, people who have debian-related user
groups, etc. And last but not least, those who have their uploads
sponsored by a Debian Developers. And then the 'official' members with
@debian.org email addresses. Those require a very high level of
technical skill and limit the participation to those who vote, as I
skimmed from recent -devel posts, there is not a high turnout for many
votes (from what I have read). Others have suggested that there could be
a tiered system of membership in debian, from more techical to less. I
like that idea. I think people in the various stata should be allow to
vote on issues that affect them.
