Isn't the case already? I mean, DAM can change that
procedure at any time, sure we can have a GR to revert it, but
there wouldn't be a difference from what is already in place,
they get to decide how people get "full Debian membership".

IMHO, it may be giving the false impression that this GR
is attached with some specific procedure and it is not. The GR
is just a matter of state it clear, as a project, that we encourage
and accept members that are not code (or packaging) contributors,
how they'll be accepted is a different matter, shouldn't be impacted
by the rules and I do trust (and expect) DAMs (and NM FrontDesk)
will clearly communicate changes on this matter.
