I guess I'm one of the few who can do all of it although I do work with artists more talented than me (shameless plug for @RP)
Yea, to me the developer is the person who puts everything together / codes the game. The art would come from an artist and the sound from a musician. Ideas are like opinions

Anyone who produces content specifically for a game is a game developer, regardless of the skillset. To say that an artist isn't a game developer, despite having to work with workflows and game dev pipelines/engine tech, is basically an insult to game dev artists. Some game 'designers' don't actually produce any content in the final game (it's scripting, content design) yet they are still developers.I don't think this is a very nice question really.
True, they are all in the game development field and they participate in the development process. But my QA teams, documentation and product managers also participate in the development process, but you will not consider calling them developers, right?
