Contributions are not only  code. There are a lot of intangibles.

Marketing, lobbying and  advocating work are some examples.

Please let us not expand what defines  contribution.

Lobbying should not IMO garner  admittance.

Advocating should not.

Working on this project(s)  should be the only work that counts.

Those who promote the project, and those who provide user support for the 
project do provide substantial services to the project.
Without them, you would have either no users or a small set of users.
Contributions must include them in some way, or the project will suffer.
