Project title: LIST OF CONTRIBUTORS (T120738)

Mentors: @Addshore , @Samtar

Abstract :

Whenever content is copied from one project to another or outside a wiki, maintaining a list of contributors would be very useful. Currently there is no such provision that is robust and effective.
The project aims at including such a list in the mediawiki software by analyzing the page history,
thus helping to gauge the page activity and provide appreciation to the contributors. It will also provide users the ability to sort and filter the list as per various aspects. The project idea was ranked #59 out of 107 proposals at wikimedia.

Implementation details:
The proposed project aims at creating a mediawiki extension to :
Display a list of contributors to a page/subpage on click of a drop down button named ‘Contributors’ on a page
The list consists of corresponding information such as
-Name of contributor
-Number of edits
-Date of last edit
-The edit comments
An option to select among the following filters to filter the list
-user holds an account?
-include subpages?
An option to sort the list based on following criteria:
-Alphabetical order of usernames
-Ascending order of date of last edit
-Highest number of edits
