yeah well - the release notes do not make that good a reference on the 
"who submitted patches" question anyway because the do not contain stuff 
that are mere compile failures or add support for additional 
platforms/cleanups) of new features (ie my patches to add GSSAPI support 
to OpenBSD/Solaris or things full text command/tabcomplete support in psql).
So in effect that list might more correctly be called a "feature 
contributor list"
