They will definitely need to be Debian Developers.With that in mind, you have just "kicked me off" the Volatile Team. :-)
Non-DD contributors are important to Debian, and they deserve greater recognition and support from the project. If a volatile developer were to be making uploads to the queue and things like that, they would need to be a DD because of how our key-signing and security stuff works. Being a DD implies a level of trust that the person is who they say they are, and are reachable and responsible for their actions. This does not mean that every member of the volatile team has to be a DD, or that only DD's make important contributions. Frankly, I would like to see greater diversity in Debian; DD's have always had yeoman status, but what of those who just want a few rights of common without the responsibility of maintaining a fief? I think we need to allow for that. Ted --It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
