I'm not sure what the point of the list is, but I had assumed that
one reason for publishing it was to show the scope of the community.
Wouldn't advocacy be better served by listing all the contributors,
even those who have contributed for the first time in that release?
Is there some risk there that I'm missing, a matter of the effort
to gather the information, or to avoid offending more regular
contributors?
