See humanstxt.org

Suggest using github repos authors and/or bugzilla users for source data, and making it a re-usable app for other mozilla sites. Then mozillians.org could scoop the humans.txt data for every mozilla site.

Don't forget the localizers. Maybe scoop those names up from Verbatim or SVN commits to locale/
Also, do we want to include just the people behind the code, or all the authors participating in docs? That could produce a pretty huge list :)

I think our dev team, localizers from Verbatim and the top docs contributors (via MindTouch stats and our Doc Sprint rosters that Janet can provide) will make a good list of folks too include this first time around.

github:
https://github.com/api/v2/json/repos/show/mozilla/kuma/contributors

verbatim:
https://localize.mozilla.org/projects/mdn/ 
foreach table#stats tr.item td.stats-name a[href]
    foreach table.topcontributors td.stats-name as contributor

MindTouch:
Not sure. Sheppy?
This is hard. Not everyone that makes a change warrants actually showing up in something like this (for example, if someone adds spam, they'd get added to the list if you automated it). Might be something we could do based on some sort of frecency type of algorithm, but realistically unless webdev wants to delve into it, it's going to be a while before we have time to make something so low priority happen, at least until the documentation bandwidth improves. Maybe once we get another writer added on-staff.

Fair enough. I wouldn't mind just making a hard-coded file listing out some hand-picked doc contributors.

for the localizers, discovered this trick:

svn log --quiet http://svn.mozilla.org/projects/mdn/trunk/locale/ | grep '^r' | awk '{print $3}' | sort | uniq > committers.txt
