This is generated by the Forrest plugin "projectInfo" from
the data in cocoon/site/status.xml

It says "other contributors" because "committers" are
contributors but these other people are contributors
but are not "committers". I had tried my best to get
that English correct. If people think that they can do
better then please send a patch to the Forrest sources.

It is very important to acknowledge everyone who is involved,
otherwise a community cannot be built.
