3. Individual Developers
3.2. Composition and appointment

   1. Developers are volunteers who agree to further the aims of the
   Project insofar as they participate in it, and who maintain
   package(s) for the Project or do other work which the Project
   Leader's Delegate(s) consider worthwhile.

Yes. The GR "just" asks the project to embrace the idea. Last time, we
tried to do something in this direction, it ended up unpleasantly.
(Which was also our fault.)
