Mike,

I found this to be quite a touchy issue. I have been thinking whether there's an acceptable
way to inject a little more structure into the standard Maven generated contributors page.
In particular I'd like to be able to mark inactive contributors as, well, inactive ones and
retired committers as retired ones to give a little more prominence to the active ones. I
was unable so far to come up with any idea how this could be accomplished without taking a
risk of upsetting some folks and provoking some tensions on the mailing list. I have been
thinking about some sort 'HttpClient history' page which would contain chronological account
of important events including credits for notable personal contributions, leaving the project
team to reflect _current_ _active_ participation in the project. However, for the Lord's sake
no way do I want to provoke no trouble between HttpClient contributors and committers thus
causing more harm than good with my innovation. In my thoughts I was gradually gravitating
towards not messing around the 'project team' page and simply appending new entries to the
existing list when you caught me with your question ;-)

If there are no better ideas how to deal with the issue, I'll add the new entrants to the
existing list and get it over with

Oleg

Wow, has it been a year already?  It seems hard to believe.

Oleg, nice work on compiling the list of changes.  This is no small 
task.

On a related note, Oleg, are you also working on updating the list of 
contributors?  If not, I will take a look at it.

Thanks,

Mike
