I pretty much left it up to the individual editors' discretion.  Jeff's 
recommendation was "folks who've participated in specifying prose and/or 
schema that's been reflected in the docs".  The actual process for 
executing the new plan was a little haphazard, which was my fault; sorry 
about that.

Jeff's formulation resulted (I hope) in people who actually contributed 
content directly being listed on page 1, and people who were voting 
members of the TC being listed in the appendix.  I reused Phill's 
"thanks for the contributions" appendix wording because it seemed nicer 
than just saying "these people were on the group".

If there are people missing from page 1 in any case, we can easily fix 
those in editorial updates.
