Hi Mario,

Sorry for not being there on sunday to finish of the commit :)
- The current list of contributors are only committers.
- The committers are collected from the project.xml (the developers section in maven), so
a lot more inactive people out there are probably listed.
- Just the list of committers is generated. The current contributor page is split up in 2
parts : top and bottom. The emuritus committers are at the bottom.
- I let maven glue the top, list of committers and bottom together.
- You end up with a generated contributors.xml in the xdocs directory.
- The generation is currently hooked into the commons-site-generate goal.
- The generation itself happens in the commons-contributors-page-generate goal.

A choices need to be made before commit :

Do we want to generate the committers from the commons-site-generate goal ?
Do we want to generate this on demand by calling a specific goal (I'll rename the goal to
something more friendly).
Make both possible ?

(I am currently reusing the list of loaded poms that the reactor stores in a variable)
