Credits Page Should Include more than 'just' people who commit a patch
|Reported by:||Ipstenu||Owned by:|
If you want to find how contributes to core, it's easy, but everyone else is unlisted.
Right now, unless the person who commits a patch remembers to 'props', the person who submits a ticket, or leads to a great discussion that drives the code to a solution in the comments, are never mentioned. This drives a wedge between coders and non-coders, as some people can help but they just may not be super coders.
1) When pulling a list of 'everyone who helped' for the credits page, also pull a list of all IDs who commented in the tickets that were commited and list as 'Also Contributed...'
2) In 'Recent Rockstars' (which is a manually culled list anyway), pull in the active awesome people in support, documentation, codex, manuals, training, and WordCamps (for example). Include people in UI who contribute screenshots/design/wireframes that drive changes.
