Re: Updating our list of GNOME contributors

Do you all remember that we list our contributors in About GNOME? The
list of GNOME contributors is probably outdated: many people contributed
a lot of stuff in recent years and are not there. It's a shame to not
thank them, so we have to fix this!

It would be really great if all maintainers could take 10 minutes and
check that all of their main contributors are listed in there. To do so,
open this URL and look for the name of your contributors:

If there are some missing contributors, send me a private reply with the
names of those contributors. I'll make sure to add them before 2.18.0.

It'd be great to have the non-ascii characters in hexa, so for example:
"Mariano Su\xc3\xa1rez-Alvarez" instead of "Mariano Suárez-Alvarez".

I'll ask for a hard code freeze break to get this in (yes, this is code

And I'll buy a $BEVERAGE_OF_CHOICE for anyone who makes the dang thing
sexy and less slow in 2.19.0. This is 2007; if our about box doesn't
optionally utilize GL, surely we've failed. :)

Bonus points for making it take less than, ya know, about a million
hours to go through the whole list :)

[And a full case of $BEVERAGE_OF_CHOICE to whoever goes through the
list of top bugsquad contributors and makes sure they are all in there
for 2.18.0. Unsung heroes and all that.]
