The problem there is basically that we don't know who to list. I
suppose we could go back to the beginning of Manoj's arch history and
then troll the changelog for more people to list, but that has a lot of
limitations. Also, we'd be listing dozens of people if we were
comprehensive, although I suppose we could move that to an appendix.
See http://bugs.debian.org/47438 for lots of discussion of this.
