Yes - I think that's a valid point - that there is a spectrum in our
contributions to numpy, and it is not possible to divide us very
clearly into those whose opinions count and those don't.  There's code
contribution, but there is also commitment and investment.  These
should also have their weight, in a healthy community.

Best,

Matthew
