Re: Congratulations to the members of the 2019-2020 TSC!

Glad to welcome the new TSC. 

Just my two cents in this ongoing email.
Should all paying members also have some small voting opportunity in addition to code contributors. Its their money that fuels some of the work. While its technical, there is plrnty of commercial interest in this noble work.

This goes back to the idea that only code contributions matter- please broaden your outlook on what "technical contributions" are. Also this signed list will be extremely difficult to maintain. Right now, even the equivalent of a "touch" (I am exaggerating here) can get you into the rolls. Which is OK.

No, let's not broaden it. Let's not try and lessen the value of the hard work done by developers. Code contributions are what moves the projects forward. If you are doing architecture or design work that makes it into the code, but someone else did the coding and commits, yes, you contributed. Probably your designs should have been committed to git as RFCs or similar. If you can't make that connection, it should not be considered the same thing. Meeting attendance, for example, is irrelevant.
