Every subject had a file named CONTRIBUTORS.md which compiles all contributors to the different data models in this subject. However, from the point of view of the management, it was not a structured format. Due to this, it is going to be replaced with a new file named CONTRIBUTORS.yaml with the same info but structured so we could manage properly and answer questions like:
- How many contributors collaborate in this subject?
- How many subjects are being contributed by this person?
- What organisations are contributing to the initiative?
Now there is also a field for allocating comments.
The format is friendly enough to be simply edited but at the same time, it can be automatically processed.
Next week CONTRIBUTORS.md will be removed from the different repos.
