'10 Years of Fedora' t-shirt

Hi, folks. Sorry I didn't do this earlier, but it kept coming at the
bottom of my priority list and I kept half-assing it :/

There is a project currently underway to distribute a commemorative
t-shirt for Fedora's 10th anniversary to significant contributors:


The people co-ordinating it contacted me to get a list of significant QA
contributors. I should've brought it to the list, but instead I just
kept putting it off and then quite hurriedly dashed off a list of
significant contributors for them a few weeks back.

I generated my list from the 'heroes of testing' blog posts (which
synthesize the numbers for release validation testing, bug submissions,
and karma), a bit of hacky analysis of my archive of the test@ mailing
list since I joined RH (in 2009) to find the most frequent posters, and
some ad hoc filtering - I dropped anyone who I know has worked for Red
Hat at any point as it seemed unfair for people who get paid to work on
Fedora to get schwag too, when it's limited (and I figured RHers are
usually drowning in schwag anyway, I know I am), and I dropped a couple
of people whose contributions to the list, while frequent, are known to
be...hem...not normally terrible productive.

The list I came up with was:

Johann Gudmundsson
Andre Robatino
Thomas Gilliard (satellit)
Chris Murphy
Michael Schwendt
Bruno Wolff
Christopher Beland
Felix Miata
Rodd Clarkson
Ankur Sinha
Tore Anderson (IPv6 testing)
Edward Kirk (tk009)
Patrick O'Callaghan
Rob Healey
Tom Horsley
Adel Gadllah
Michael Cronenworth
Ed Greshko
Scott Robbins
"Clyde E. Kunkel"
Antonio Olivares
"Robert P. J. Day"
Michal Jaegermann
cornel panceac
Frank Murphy
Joachim Backes
Bjoern Esser
Bob Lightfoot
T.C. Hollingsworth
Igor Gnatenko
Harald Reindl

If you don't recognize some of those names, check their Bodhi
submissions - there's a few people on the list who aren't very active on
test@ or in validation testing, but do a large amount of Bodhi feedback,
e.g. Bjoern Esser is the only person who's provided over 1000 Bodhi

I kept meaning to grab the mailing list archives from 2004-2009 as well
and update the list based on analysis of those, but haven't gotten
around to it yet. I'll try and do it after I send this mail.

Does anyone see any problems with the list I've generated so far? Any
names that are missing? I believe we still have time to amend the list.
I'll stick a topic on the Monday meeting agenda for this also. Thanks!
