Description (last modified by Will Kahn-Greene)

We should start giving credit to everyone who's making GNU
MediaGoblin a success (and not just people who do (c) assignment
with the FSF).

Where's the best place to put this?

Assigning to Will, whom I know is presently overloaded, and can get
to after Miro 4.0 gets out the door.

I think this requires two things:

1. a file like AUTHORS that lists everyone and maybe a one/two-word
   blurb of what they worked on (e.g. translations, code, bug
   reporter, thinker, docs, ...)
2. a clearly stated and easy to find workflow that's easy to do for
   someone to request their name get added to the AUTHORS file

I also think we should do this:

1. a view in the software that displays the AUTHORS file... maybe
   /gmgcredits/ or something like that

I'm still +1 on the AUTHORS idea. That's what I'm doing with
PyBlosxom now, though I'm being looser about it and not including
what people worked on--it's just a big list of names of people who

Is that what we want to do?
