A couple of people asked this question - I thought I'd explained the idea 
pretty well, but I guess I missed the mark.

The list is a list of people who were active in the project several years ago, 
but who have gone on to other things. It would be nice to get some of them back 
working on the GIMP, if they have the time. So this is a little effort on our 
part (on my part) to communicate better with some people who are likely to be 
interested in what's happening with the gimp. The list is pretty incomplete, as 
Daniel Egger says, that's why I sent it here to get more suggestions. And as 
you say, some of these people are still on the developers list.

Basically, the two groups where we can hope to get volunteers are people who 
have already helped with the gimp, and people who have never done so. The 
problem with the latter group is that they don't have the accumulated knowledge 
of experience, and we don't know who they are. The former group are both 
experienced, and known. Therefore, they're easier to get in touch with :)

So - that's the idea. Any additions to the list are graciously accepted.
