At least Frédéric Schutz meets my personal definition of recent,
significant contributor :)

Fine with me, but I'd appreciate not including my email address anywhere
online, as feedback and bug reports are better sent to the validator
list, and I receive enough spam already...

BTW, the CVS version of checklink contains an embedded manual page which
has a AUTHOR section, currently mentioning Hugo, Renaud, me, Frédéric
and "many other volunteers".

I would appreciate that, as well as (of course) striving to get $TNV of
validator out as soon as possible.

Reading the diffs between the current "production" version and the
latest checklink in validator-0_6_0-branch tells me that the upgrade
would require taking care of checklink.conf, by default in
/etc/w3c/checklink.conf.  It's not strictly mandatory as checklink will
run without the config file using default settings (== disallow checking
private IP addresses, send authentication info only to the host which
requested it).

But the current production version uses .w3.org as the "trusted" domain.

If you wish to preserve that, I'd suggest configuring 2 instances of
checklink, one without a config file for public use, and another for W3C
internal use, using a config file containing "Trusted = \.w3\.org$". 
See the default config in htdocs/config/checklink.conf.

Testing in :8001 first could be a good idea :)
