What about contributors or people just using our tools ( bugzilla,
etc ), who are not strictly speaking "developpers". Ie, here, we speak
of the changelog, but there is more than packagers in the project, and
more contributions than packages. 

So shouldn't the thread be moved to -discuss, or dispatched to others
teams ?
