The "natural person" part was lost in this change. It also doesn't
reappear in the added section below. I think we don't want any corporate
entities there (or at least that's what I had taken from the previous
"Sony" discussion).

I just notice that it says "contributor" here while it is "committer"
above. Not sure which is better, but maybe we should use the same word

The authors thanking themselves would be very unusual in an
acknowledgement. :) I suggest to just add John Helmert III to the
existing list (keeping alphabetical order). All others are either
authors or are already mentioned.
