Partly because of that kind of sensibility, it's not a
productive use of our time to argue about who's a core
developer and who is not.  Anyway, from a software-engineering
point of view, a more fruitful way to think about it is to
ask who uses the version-control system the most.  Even if a
contributor is not a "core developer" (whatever that means),
if they use the version-control system a lot while making
significant contributions to Emacs, then their opinion
should matter.  After all, our goal is improving Emacs and
advancing software freedom, not exclusion or bureaucracy.
