Hi Daniel,

I was running that process and the words that came up for discussion

 - Patron
 - Donor
 - Member
 - Supporter
 - Contributor
 - Fellow

The discussion was had jointly between the Coordinators Team and Core Team.
Ultimately, Supporter was chosen by a majority vote of those teams. Then
we had a concluding vote in the same teams regarding whether to adopt the
proposal to replace the term "Fellow" with "Supporter" (YES) or not (NO)
which resulted in 31 votes in favor (YES), 6 votes against (NO).
