I got your point, in fact Struts (1 and 2) is a really big and popular
project, so the number of contributors is very large. If you don't like
putting it into the POM, why not a simple text file as Frank W. Zammetti
suggested? Moreover, we could force the contributor to check the presence of
his/her name in the file and post a patch for it too (otherwise, his/her
name won't appear).

I promise you, it will lead to insignificant patch

It seems like you already lived a situation like this :-D Anyway, if this
solution is not feasible, it's not a problem. I wanted only to explain the
situation from a contributor standpoint (not mine obviously :-) ).
