This one: tracking gaps in contributions would complicate everything
considerably, and in the context of contributors.debian.org, I think for
very little gain.

I've already sort of implemented it. It's implemented in all
source-specific lists, just not in the main list.

The reason is, I can't decide if we want it in the main list at all: I
wouldn't want to turn the DC page in a race of who's been contributing
the longest, so perhaps that information just shouldn't be shown in the
main list.

I've taken the item off the todo list; we can always add it if we think
there's a good reason for it.
