You're free to have whatever cognitive biases you like, but its unfortunate
that you judge people based on your flawed assumption that you have complete
knowledge of folks' contribution histories. (Also unfortunate that you are
so quick to make an ad hominem). I've been around longer than you think -
why, I remember when Tim was still a wee php hacker learning the ropes.
Probably I've been around longer than you, and most of the people who hack
on mediawiki. I've been contributing to the projects since the early days in
my own ways, which includes core research on quality and creating
experimental technologies. I personally find contributing to mediawiki core
dull, I like to do things which I perceive to be more interesting, and when
I have a result, I present it at Wikimania.
Besides a bunch of code commits, how have you contributed to the projects?
