Bug Description

Evergreen master / all previous

On the current attributions page in the Evergreen docs, the page lists out the "Current DIG Members" (see for example, generated output for master:

However, this list has not been updated in several years and many are no longer active participants in the project.

Instead, I think we should alter this list to be a recognized contributor list where we can name individuals and organizations who have provided documentation to the community if so desired.

Thoughts, opinions? Patch forthcoming, unless someone else beats me to it later. Have to go through and actually try generating a list of everyone who's helped (and not all DIG contributors have git authorship or signoffs)

Ben, I brought this up at the May DIG meeting and people liked it.

I kinda wanted to use this as HW for DIG members that are learning to contribute through Git. Feel free to create the change, or you prefer I can assign it to the newly trained members. I am fine with it either way.

Let me know, Yamil
