bug#28585: 26.0.60; [Emacs manual] Acknowledgements section omits some c


From: N. Jackson
Subject: bug#28585: 26.0.60; [Emacs manual] Acknowledgements section omits some contributors
Date: Sun, 24 Sep 2017 16:25:31 -0400

This suggestion is about the address@hidden Acknowlegements Section near
the beginning of the "print" manual, not about the address@hidden
Acknowlegements Section (ack.texi) at the end of the Info manual.

There are 443 contributors acknowledged in this section. I realise
the section must be hard to keep up to date (and indeed there is a
comment in it about possibly dropping it and IIUC replacing it
with a reference to AUTHORS) but I suggest that anyone who is the
author of more than 100 commits should be included. In the current
log for the emacs-26 branch (which goes back to about 1985) there
are only about 90 such individuals.

While I realise there are many problems with using commit count as
a measure of contribution, and also that the log is not especially
reliable (especially without some normalization), I don't think it
would be too controversial to say that all of these 90-odd people
should be acknowledged as a contributor.

The following people all have more than 100 commits but are omitted:

  Ken Brown
  Tino Calancha
  Artur Malabarba
  Mark Oteiza
  Nicolas Petton
  Noam Postavsky
  Philipp Stephani

I suggest they be added (unless they have deliberately been
omitted because they're included under a different name or have
requested they be omitted or whatever).

Below is an attempt at a patch to do this. (Note: Rather than
re-fill the lines, I made the minimum changes. This makes some
lines rather long but some of the existing lines are longer, and
since this section is justified by TeX anyway, I'm guessing this
is not a problem?)
