I thought Ken was joking (sorry!). Do we really need this level of detail? 
Who would be interested?

Also, people other than those with CVS write-access make contributions, how 
would we factor that in?

Unless there's a pressing reason, can we leave things as they are (anyone 
who wants their name on their bit of code is welcome)?

(Aren't you worried that Kitware salaries will be index-linked to the 
individual's contribution-coefficient...? :)
