As we still remember the big "on terminology" thread[0] and we don't
want here to create more confusion nor to start the big renaming race,
I think it will be better to leave terminology out of this GR, as this
will introduce even more ambiguity: aren't sponsored packagers
debian contributors(lowercase) too?

I'd thus propose not to call them Debian Contributors (DC) now, and let
NM/DAM team pick an appropriate name when reforming the procedures.

Ciao, Luca
