Stakeholder is an English business term which applies to both
for-profits and non-profits.  A stakeholder is a person, group,
organization, who affects or can be affected by an organization's

For example:
Every contributor - Each individual has an interest in how effectively
their contributions in time and talent meet the needs of the target
community served by the project.

OLPC* - OLPC is the primary distributor of sugar to end users.

Deployments, both individually and as a group --  Deployments take the
laptops + software and combine it with additional infrastructure,
educational resources, and support and distribute it to school.

Schools, both individually and collectively --
NZ testers --
Translators --
Researchers --
Universities like RIT --
