It is helpful to have a file that is updated with each change along with who contributed and committed the patch.
This file was created as part of GIRAPH-16. Resolving. I would note that entries are being added at the top rather than the bottom, as those of us from Hadoop-land are used to. This is fine, just need to remember to be consistent.
Should we add dates too? I don't have a preference on the ordering either, but agree that consistency is important.
