Thus the plan is to restrict it to well known open-source or project

So, when a new person attempts to subscribe to this list (say, a Debian or ASF
developer), someone is going to check this person's FOSS credentials before
membership is accepted, right? How is this going to be organised and will there
be objective criteria for "well known"?

Adding a restriction like this would be really bad, since a lot of users are "worthy" of devel-status and can produce occasional patches or propose/discuss stuff relevant for development, even though the don't own a FOSS project?!?

This would effectively narrow the number of people who can (try to) influence the project.
