Worth discussing, but not the issue in this thread IMO.

Yes, there surely are better terms to use for characterising the
relationship of Debian recipients to the Debian Project.

The issue is that the term “customer”, which some have argued should
pass without comment when people claim it, should be challenged
because of the false expectations and assumptions it carries. It does
not help to characterise the relationship with that term.

And that remains so, regardless of the merits of other terms.
