I have the same general questioning and don't have the answer.

I'm also supportive of giving credit to contributors/supporters, I feel 
that this is important but I just don't know how.  As with any list, 
when you start listing people/orgs you are bound to forget some (who 
could be upset). You also need to draw a arbitrary line somewhere to 
decide which contributions are worth mentioning...
