Since the minimum discussion period is now over and since no new
amendments have been proposed, I'm hereby calling for a vote.

It is my understanding that the current wording of the GR is the

The Debian project aims at producing the best free operating system.
To that end, the project benefits from various types of contributions,
including, but not limited to: package maintenance, translations,
infrastructure and website maintenance, porting, bug triaging and
fixing, management activities, communication, testing, legal advice,
quality assurance, etc.

The Debian project acknowledges that:

* To pursue Debian goals, package maintenance as well as a wide range of
  other technical and non-technical contributions are all valuable.

* Active contributors of non-packaging work, who share Debian values
  and are ready to uphold Debian Foundation Documents, deserve the
  opportunity to become Debian Developers.

The Debian project, therefore, invites the Debian Account Managers to:

* Endorse the idea that contributors of non-packaging work might become
  Debian Developers, albeit without upload access to the Debian archive.

* Establish procedures to evaluate and accept contributors of
  non-packaging work as Debian Developers.

* Initiate the appropriate technical measures to enable contributors of
  non-packaging work, who get accepted as Debian Developers, to
  participate in Debian decision making and to access Debian

A corresponding ballot might look like the following:

[   ] Choice 1: Welcome non-packaging contributors as project members
[   ] Choice 2: Further discussion
