core devs are

1. current - they actually have been active in cvs etc. recently (if you go
away for 6 months and come back... you aren't core until u start getting back
"in the game" - at some fuzzy point afterwards u are back
2. you know what u are doing the vast majority of the time. you aren't blindly
3. you actually ACCEPT responsibility for your work and when it needs fixing -
u fix.
4. you have a big hand in code development. devs who do packaging i wouldn't
consider "core" but more "helpers"

i don't like to make a "them and us" culture though - so i want to keep this
all fuzzy and nebulous.
