Could we consider putting countries in the Contributors list at some point?  I 
think it would encourage more people from outside the US to become 
contributors.  Currently the project is imbalanced, with 2/3 of our users 
outside the US (or more) and 1/2 our contributors inside the US.  A lot of 
that has to do with employers, of course, but we should give all the 
encouragement we can.
