Debian Contributors

A new, automatic, doocratic membership to change the face of Debian

There is a new hat in Debian, bearing the flattering title of "Debian Contributor". Everyone who contributes to Debian is entitled to have it, and gets it automatically. It is a way to give due credit to all manners of contributions to the project. It is a way to make all the energy that is poured into Debian visible. I will show the reasons behind the idea, and how works. I will show how it may change the way we perceive Debian, and very much for the better.
