I think that'd be a step backwards. Those who get to vote should
be contributing to the development (=being developers) of debian
in some way. "Members" only for voting strike me as deadwood.
If we need to make becoming a developer clearer, then let's do
that, rather than introduce a new class of non-developer member.

I remain of the opinion that developer=maintainer is a bug and
developer=member is a feature. All members should help to develop,
in some way, but not necessarily to package or program.

Hope that helps,
