Actually, the total number is probably much larger than 500.  Back when
emacs used CVS, only the actual committers were logged, though they
probably committed tons of changes others sent them per mail but
couldn't commit themselves.  And there are many emacs packages that have
their own repositories (Org, Gnus, ERC, etc.), and not all of them are
synched on a per-commit basis with emacs' repository, so parts of their
contributors are probably not included in the statistics, too.
