There are other ways of "donation" than simple cash, and IMHO all
contributors deserve a mention.
For example, take OpenOffice.org, where every patch is "assimilated" into
the codebase with no credit at all (at least in Apache the contribution is
recorded somewhere).
Probably a "Credits" file inside the distribution is enough, or better, a
page similar to the "Volunteers" page (without all the stories :-) ) could
show our wish to thank all the people who contribute.
