Well isn't that interesting. I would have thought you knew me better
than that by now. How unfortunate.

I do not care if I am personally listed. My reputation (for good or bad)
precedes me and I in know way need such as listing for anyone to
recognize my work for this community. 

My concern which has been stated on multiple points on this thread is
that people who are major contributors are recognized as such,
regardless of their code contributions.

Marc this is pretty much what has already been discussed in entirety
throughout the day. Please read the following:

I suggest a multi-tiered list that is representative for each group
including developers.

I also as you are very well aware suggested an even simpler solution
directly to you by adding a contributor_type.
