That's total bullshit. If they would really care about joining, they
could simply start to read the documentation, which explicitly shows
them how to understand the term maintainer and/or developer.

And anyway, it's not like people who should consider to join have
nothing to do with Debian and don't know the particularities of its
culture - even if this is unclear to people who are new to Debian, it
should be no problem for an active contributor.
