"Up to 10 members"? What does this actually mean?

I'm paying for the $10/mo plan since I'm running an open source project that (at present) has 4 developers, including myself. I hope to grow this team size over the next year.

I assumed I needed to pay in order to do this, however, I invited the other developers by email (the only way I could see to add a user) and although these users are now listed under my members page, my account still says I have "1 member in total".

What exactly are "members" in this context?

    Hey Chris, since the additional users are just members of your Open Source project, they are not counted against your member count.

    Lighthouse provides free ticket-tracking for Open Source projects, you don't need to pay for OSS content (unless you just feel like supporting the cause). You only need to upgrade to a paid account if you need private projects or exceed usage limits.

    Account Admins, who have control over account and projects settings, the power to invite, remove, edit, etc...are counted against your member numbers.

    Thanks Will,

    That clears things up. I'll keep the $10/mo plan for now since I'm
    quite likely to be starting a private project spun-off this open
    source project. It's just not been made official or announced yet.

    Looks like you guys might need to add captcha :) Seen a few of these spam posts in help threads.

    Yeah, our spam filtering is still pretty young and learning to ropes, we've got some changes coming up soon. Sorry about that.
