Sounds good to me. I've found the same info useful. In fact, just
yesterday I had added the list of committers I assembled to the
I've gone ahead and created a Committers page with more info. It also
lets people know who to contact (me) if they would like access, and
should help people find out who to talk to when they need help.
I went ahead and filled out most of the details on the people I'm
aware of, except for email. I'm not sure what you'd like to publicly
put out there on Trac.
Developers - If you'd like, please take the time to fill in your email
and amend anything I got wrong (e.g. I just put pretty much everyone's
"committer date" as this month.)
(Also, forgive me for looking into most peoples affiliations and
listing them here, but it does help individual identification - and
it's a decently diverse set of places, which is neat in its own
