A large part of the problem is that Joshua, for quite some time now, has been 
trying to change the definition of what the contributors on this page means. 
Granted he has been smart about it, getting little things changed over time 
to get closer and closer to his end goal. In the past we kept it with the 
original spirit of the page, which was to recgonize those who have made 
contributions that help further the core project. Core is generally in a good 
position to know who those people are (or at least come to agreement with 
some minimal prodding).
