You're right. I think there's a lot of inconsistency here. So, why not
keep it VERY simple?

1. Wipe the team page clean.
2. Add a paragraph with a alphabetically sorted, comma-separated list of
names of contributors (without mail addresses, includes committers). The
listing would be regardless of the amount of work on FOP. If need be,
the committers in bold.
3. Add a link to
http://people.apache.org/committers-by-project.html#xmlgraphics-fop
(which, unfortunately, doesn't contain the list of committers before the
move from CVS to SVN).
4. Possibly restore the note about FOP's founder.

No more active or inactive contributors/committers (is he still active?
is he not?...). Every committer makes sure that the names of
contributors make it to the contributor list. We know who the candidates
for committership are from our daily work. I think that would increase
fairness and maintainability of the team list. And it allows to remove
all author tags and comments in a fair way. If any committer thinks that
the amount of recognition for the project is important, we can always
add a link to the Ohloh page of FOP which does a much better job at
telling who contributed how much and when.

That an idea?
