The contributors lists in every Guide are compiled manually, and because 
the XML must be finalised before providing the files to L10N, the lists 
are always one release out of date.

I have discussed this issue at length with Noriko; the only practical 
solution is that we provide a page on the Fedora wiki for each guide, 
where we can acknowledge contributors to the /current/ versions of the 
guide. I have undertaken to have this in place for F13, but am running a 
little late.

I will have something in place within the next few days; this will 
require a small string change to the User's Guide, and I'll notify 
trans-list when this is in place.
