Its a term from me, it is not official.

It is a bit like Sam said: if you subscribe to a mailinglist, then you
part of a "workforce".
Like subscribing to makes you - if you
write emails - to a contributor and therefore to a part of the
developers workforce.

If the project decides that a new workforce is needed, like
"translations", it can simply be established with a new mailinglist
like ooo-translations@i.a.o
Everybody can subscribe and help with working.

That being said, "workforce" is a bit an unnecessary term - i
described a bunch of people having fun to discuss similar topics at
one mailinglist.
