AMs, the DAM and other people in the project are more hesitant to grant
developership to people with non-standard forms of contributions.
Sometimes, it's simply harder to test for these because there aren't
templates or even qualified AMs!  Documentation is relatively common.
i18n is a little trickier. I asked around about developership for
Debian's lawyer and was told by everyone that it seemed problematic.

Don: You were extremely active in Debian-Legal before becoming a developer.
Were you tested or evaluated on those contributions? If not, why not?
