o What about "Members corner" instead of "developers corner" ? all
members are not developers

I checkout other opensource website ( etc....), and it is best practice to
use "developers corner"

As you want. My point is to make sure that non-developers members are
not confused or irritated and as we clarly divided roles into
jobs (dev, translator, testers, doc writer...), I found that logical.
Note that all the websites you quote are clarly developement-oriented
(OK, we can find a i18n page in KDE corner after 2 or 3 clicks)...

I asked the dictionary. Development - to create or produce especially
by deliberate effort over time. So that would make me (the graphics
guy) a developer as well. However, as you pointed out, the word
developer is tightly linked to the notion of programming. So, I agree
we need another word.

How about this? Contribute - to give or supply in common with others.
Thats totally the OS philosophy we want to promote. Ubuntu does it
the same way:

Sadly thought we would have to change many more links / titles if we
start making that distinction. Should we do it?

See : they speak about "members". I'll
use the "member" word, not contributor as it already has another meaning (see
the team page): non-members people that contribute. I agree that the move
should be done only if it's not too much work (I can help on it if needed).
