I agree that contributions should be recognized but moderator of mailing
lists is of course a low burner. Keeping the info up-to-date requires
more work and the benefit is really low.

If somebody want his name listed we can of course do that, I think it is
not important here and real contributors have their stage somewhere else.

But who knows finding 100 more moderator is potentially easier than
finding 100 new developers and we can shine with 100 new contributors.
If we have a limit per list I step back as moderator ;-)
