In FreeBSD we have a simple contributers file, which lists everyone who
has contributed anything, however, major or minor to the project. I 
think something similar wouldn't be too much of a problem. You get into
trouble when you try to attribute different degrees of commitment, I think
that would be a big mistake. Just list everyone who has contributed 
anything to the project, it helps to show that it's a broad group of
people who are involved.
