The Debian Project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone.
It doesn't matter how you define yourself or how others define you: we
welcome you.  We welcome contributions from everyone within their areas
of expertise, as long as they can be constructive members of our
community. While much of the work of the Project is technical in nature,
we will value and encourage contributions to the Project from those with
expertise in non-technical areas and welcome such contributors as part
of our community.
