I don't really think we have a hard time doing this. The only
problem is that we never sat down and actually properly recorded
this in one place.

Other projects will, of course, have their own websites, but since
Python is more than just CPython, it would be great to include those
other developers in an official list as well. It would be up for
for the other teams to maintain their lists.

That said, this part is lower priority than the CPython core
developer listing.

As discussed before, being a core developer is a status you
gain and never lose. There is a clear difference between have
commit rights to the (current) repo and this status.

What I am after, is a list of core developers, not a list of
people with their keys on github (or where ever we move in the
future), since this list is not about a technical status, but rather
a social one.
