The distinction between the latter two may be subtle, but it matters
to me.  And in my mind, I write the Release Notes on behalf of the

is perhaps as far as I can go in that capacity, without singling out
one contributor among 80+ contributors with changes between 1.9 and
2.0 (among which a dozen or so have more than 10 patches---some are
trivial and patch count alone does not do justice, though) with
similar "pay them to show your appreciation" pleas.

I however feel that I can certainly do that as an active (and highly
visible) contributor, and even as the maintainer.
