It is really good to get various opinions and is most helpful.
I will make an effort to gradually add headers where missing based on what
information Andrew/I can find.
How about AUTHORS in the manual and then link to look there (so easy to do
with HTML reference?  Then we can say "mea culpa" for missing people,
incorrect information like email addresses, and include credit for Testers,
Manual Writing, YouTube videos contributions, and so on -- this could be
more thorough, and hopefully would not make anyone feel bad.
