Anyone who works on Debian is a Debian contributor, but only Debian Developers and Debian Maintainers get some kind of official recognition. That should change, that will change. I have concrete ideas on how to give everyone who has done something for Debian the recognition they deserve. I will use Debconf for reality checks, road tests and initial implementation, and will present the results in this talk. This is intended as a presentation of the idea as it gets after taking its final shape and having code written during the conf, and should probably be scheduled towards the end of it. I'll also submit for a BOF towards the beginning to get my evil plans exposed to public scrutiny, discussed and prototyped/implemented during the conf.
