Of course not. As stated previously, my gripe is explicitly the idea
that only developers can be major contributors. That is all.

I have offered several solutions to that problem, including having a
contributor_type column that would allow a major contributor to be
designated as a hacker/developer but would not give them some
preferential listing (artificial or not) over a non hacker.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
