It seems to me that, if “albeit without upload access to the Debian archive”
were removed, it would not close the possibility for the people in charge to
restrict upload capacities of developers who do not need them (do-o-cracy),
while at the same time it would make the GR more neutral, focusing it on
acceptance of new members, without suggesting restriction and therefore
difference of status.

Would such a change be a happy end for everybody ?
