One thing I have done on several occasions in to make summaries of large
threads. However, I'm not sure that it would have helped in this case.
In that case, I think that it just needed someone to fix the wiki pages,
since it seems from the discussion that there was agreement on what
needed fixing. And if people disagree, it can still be reverted.
My "patch" would be:
1. move some useful content from DebianProjectMember to DebianDeveloper
2. update DebianDeveloper to mention non-uploading DDs
3. remove DebianProjectMember
4. redirect DebianProjectMember to DebianDeveloper
5. drop all references to DebianProjectMember
I will "implement" it at a less busy time for me if nobody beats me to
