A contributor is someone who makes an explicit change to the document (through a PR).

In the acknowledgements using traditional means (though GH's API possibly provides a way to get the names of everyone who has either created a bug or commented on a any bug, if necessary - not that we don't go this hardcore in normal WG's. ).
