In the interests of fairness, I think it would be good to have some rule of thumb for who we call out in the contributors section.  I'm interested in feedback (or prior art/examples) for what this rule of thumb would be.  I've looked at a few of the published specs but its hard to see a common pattern - indeed comparatively few use the "Contributors" field, and where it is used the list is usually quite short.  [I may have just missed good examples....]

I think its important that where a non-WG participant has contributed or been heavily involved that they are included as contributors - indeed that is the case that motivated this issue.  Is that the only category that we should include?  Obviously some people in the WG have been more involved in particular deliverables than others, but that risks (a) quite a degree of subjectivity and, (b) quite a long list which doesn't seem to be common practice.

Views?
