A major contributor is differentiated from other contributors based on 1) 
longevity in the community, 2) number of areas they work on, 3) signifigance 
of the contributions that have been made. 

To become an other contributor, you have to have contributed something of 
sginifcance to the community; this has typically meant some new feature for a 
release, but could also mean being a package maintainer for one of the open 
source platforms; it was something specific to the postgresql core project 
though; ie. something likely discussed on the postgresql mailing lists, or 
involving the central project.
