As far as I gather, there are two distinct ideas:
Ubuntu Community Member (or member of the ubuntu community)
To become a Ubuntu Member requires going through an approval process,
and to have been a member of the Ubuntu community.
To be a member of the Ubuntu community just requires participation in
it, via mailing lists, newsgroups, IRC, wikis, commits, forums etc.
This is different to a 'ubuntu user' who uses the software but doesn't
participate in the community.
(I do think the names are rather more similar than is convenient.)
The CoC, therefore, applies to anyone participating in the ubuntu
community - including those of us on this list.
"Membership of the Ubuntu community means recognition of a significant
and sustained contribution to Ubuntu and the Ubuntu community."
Which implies there is "Membership" and there is "Community", the
first is a subset of the second.
That seems pretty definitive to me that community members ain't us.
...or at least ain't me.
No, "Ubuntu Members" 'aint you', but "Ubuntu Community" is you and
everyone else on this list.
I agree though the wording isn't great.
