I would suggest to use "core member" or "core contributor"
instead. This captures the fact that the people who get opensuse.org
addresses are the core of the project and still doesn't exclude anybody from
feeling as a member or contributor to the project without formal recognition.

I simply don't think this confusion arises as much as you are
suggesting; I also don't think the word itself implies it. "Core
member" would, however, be even more confusing as it's used completely
differently in other OSS projects (whereas plain "member" is -- to my
knowledge -- only used in a way similar to this, successfully), as I
mentioned before.

Kind thoughts,
