I don't believe that's the hard part. Whomever produces a (non-trivial)
patch that fixes a bug/introduces a feature/you call it can be considered a
contributor. Consider the BTS a CVS and all those who send patches CVS 
uploaders who get "reviewed" by the maintainer before applying. Similary 
for those who send patches to the maintainer directly.

The list, IMHO should include:
- Upstream authors/translators (without them Debian cannot do a thing)
- Debian developers
- Translators within Debian 
- People that have contributed something that eventually found its way to a 
Debian package (be it through the BTS or through direct e-mail)
