Being a team _peer_ member is distinct than just attending. I know it
may sound ludicrous or over-theorical, but this is important to know
who gets a vote and who doesn't, in some situation (such as electing
the leader, the deputy leader, and deciding on serious issues if a
vote is needed). So, in this point of view, yes, having a list of who
is a peer is important.

It's important too so that it can be written somewhere for write
accesses in some places (yes, the storage thing is lagging behind), so
that we can roughly know how many people are involved (there's a
user/group web app in the works), etc.

Credits are a distinct thing. For instance, Olivier Faurax (for the
original design) and Alexn83 (for reworking it) have to be in such a
list for the current logo (and if we are for an exact changelog of it,
we can as well add Hélène, but that was an offline work).

As a reminder, being a peer means having been recognized by other
peers. And as we did for other teams, this list has to be bootstrapped
by the leader.
