I'm still +1 for Development for all the reasons given by David. The key 
one being: 'we are all "developers"'

We, as a community, should work to communicate this at every 
opportunity. One way would be to use the "developer" term for all 
"development tasks", including the ones listed by Ferdinand as 
"non-development" tasks, i.e."tasks like documentation, project 
management etc."

In Forrest, and open source in general, these are all development tasks 
and anyone who takes on such a task is the same as those who dive into 
the code. We need more people who dive into the code, if they start on 
non-code tasks first, that is fine - they are still "developers".

At the end of the day it is just a word - the value of this discussion 
is the desire to remove the "us and them" concerns David identified.
