the contributors have to take their credit, to get attribution.
I did that so I cannot mess up the anonymous part and the
'fish out the right name out of the email' part.

if somebody does not take credit then (s)he fall out of the
attribution chain. If the there is no contributor to attribute
to then 'GIMP UI brainstorm blog' will do.

I think people who take credit should get attribution.
Could be a reason not to contribute because the licence is too lax.

I dread having to check that the whole attribution chain is in
