Please obfuscate all e-mail addresses like we do elsewhere, or maybe
just drop them.  Otherwise this becomes a "spam list".  E-mail addresses
are only reasonable to have in that file if/when we list each person's
specific contributions right there - which would be a good thing to do.

Yes, I think we should eventually add all other contributors that you
mention above.  We should also list each person's specific contributions.

For now, what you did is a step in the right direction.

Thank you!
