I'll wait for others to respond. If we don't already have this
information on the wiki I will create a page.

Thanks for asking about this, I was interesting in such information too.

I want to make a timeline of OSGeo and OSGeo projects for a poster that

Maybe we need a history page on the wiki to track such information in 
one place similar to Tyler's recent summary of OSGeo contributors.
