I see. Well... According to revision 1.1  (by murray and nik):
"Combine parts of Chapter 21 and Appendix D from the FreeBSD Handbook
into a separate 'Contributors' article so that everything is in one
place. This was done for various reasons :
* This information is way out of scope for the Handbook.
* When we talk about "Contributors" to FreeBSD or developed by "A
large team of individuals" on the web site we can point the user
to a complete document on our web page rather than two separate
chapters in the Handbook.
* We can create a plain-text 'CREDITS' file from this SGML and put
it in /usr/share/misc or similar for all FreeBSD installs if that
It was full of outdated and out of synch information, but there is
always place for ideas for a better a documentation, I think.

I support it. When do you think this process could be started? Are
there any actual obstacles?

I am fond of this kind of approach ;) For example, mentors could only
send a file like you attached to their mentees to fill up in advance. I
would be happy to see something like this.
What do you think will be needed to implement this and get the ball rolling?
