Thanks Mike.

See here <https://github.com/tabatkins/bikeshed/issues/885> for hints 
wrt conz'g up a "contributors" and/or "authors" list given current state 
of bikeshed. it seems Tab Atkins has on his todo list making this more 
feasible, dunno about timeline tho.

See https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/726 for a stab at doing this.

FYI, the Bikeshed documentation I found at 
https://tabatkins.github.io/bikeshed/ described Editor and Former Editor 
entries - both of which are now used, but it did not describe anything 
like a Contributor entry, so all contributors continue to be listed in 
the Acknowledgements section.  If someone knows the Bikeshed incantation 
to add a Contributors section, please add it as a comment in the PR.

So the original authors of the FIDO spec that was accepted as a starting 
point in W3C should be listed as Editors, anyone that has consistently 
added/modified text should be listed as editor and all others would be 
contributors. I agree that we should ask each of the current members how 
they want to be listed if they have in any way contributed.

that's nominally fine by me, tho...

* the masthead sections should be alphabetized.


* what's the delineation between "editor" and "contributor"?

In (many) specs I've worked on in the past, "editor" denotes who is 
actually actively contributing substantially to the spec at the time of 
spec's timestamp, and those are the folks on the hook to help jump the 
spec thru process hoops.

E.g., I talked with Hubert and he's totally fine with being listed as a 
"contributor" at this time.

Perhaps we should ask each of the folks in the current "editors" list 
how they wish to be denoted on the W3C webauthn spec when it goes to CR.
Also, we should ask those listed below as "contributors to consider 
adding" how they wish to be ack'd -- as "contributor" or in 
"acknowledgements", and we are adding Angelo as an editor, and need to 
talk with Jeffrey Y. about that.


* We already have an acknowledgements section [1] towards the end of the 
spec. It needs to be updated and I'm willing to write more detailed acks 
for those who've made key contributions, as noted below. additions to 
that list welcome.


HTH,
