The only conceivable purpose such a list could have not currently met by
bugzilla (feel free to add comments or Cc yourself on bugs, or even
watch the metacity-maint pseudo-user) is "harassing metacity
contributors more publicly".

Metacity doesn't have any people who are super-regular contributors,
since it can be rather difficult to work on metacity for 2 reasons:
window managers are complex and arcane, but also because there is so
much negativity that you're subjected to.  The last thing we need is to
make it worse.
