 I really would like to see this proposal (or at least something along
the lines) to be carried on with. This discussion shows clearly that we
have a need for a rework of it and need to offer better possibilities
for long standing contributors like translators and others that won't
ever touch a package and through that have no voice within the project
because they aren't allowed to vote. This is really offputting and
discouraging for them to see that people who do *way* less are allowed
to vote and get proper permissions to do stuff.

 Thanks for bringing the link back to live, I was about to dig it up to
throw it in myself.

 So long,
