I wonder -
would it be possible to get some kind of script set up to
take, say, a thousand of our most popular articles and tell us what
the "cite all named authors who make nontrivial contributions" result
would be like? This might be a useful bit of data...
If you define "nontrivial" for me, that should not be too hard...
Nikola's cutoff above was "If all edits shorter than 10 characters are
excluded..." - this sounds not unreasonable, since adding three words
or more will take you over it.
I'm not sure quite how the results were obtained via WikiBlame, but it
certainly seems a little more meaningful than just dumping every name
which appears in the article history. (Admittedly, that has the
advantage of not accidentally excluding anyone...)
