[alpine-devel] [Proposal] Remove "# Contributors:" from APKBUILDs

Hello Alpinists.

I think the contributors on an APKBUILD doesn't give much useful information and only makes the APKBUILDs longer.
In the off chance you want to see who contributed in the past to a package, you can use git log.
Most times only the maintainer is useful.
If he doesn't answer, you can look at whoever else contributed to the package with git log.
It'll be much more detailed and give a better idea.
As a good side-effect this would also make the maintainer of a package easier to parse.

How do you feel about it?
If you like it I can send PRs to deal with this.

Thank you.
