Description

Background: #577, #3114.

At the moment, the Credits API only has data for WordPress 3.2+.

In comment:2:ticket:577 and comment:1:ticket:3114, a possibility of backfilling the data for older releases was suggested.

In a brief Slack discussion, @jonoalderson noted that it would indeed be beneficial for the project.

The list of contributors should be relatively easy to get via Git/SVN history or release posts:

3.1https://wordpress.org/news/2011/02/threeone/
3.0https://wordpress.org/news/2010/06/thelonious/
2.9https://wordpress.org/news/2009/12/wordpress-2-9/
2.8https://wordpress.org/news/2009/06/wordpress-28/
2.7https://wordpress.org/news/2008/12/coltrane/

Earlier release posts didn't include contributors, so Git/SVN history would be the only option for them.

Release leads might be harder to track down, but still seems doable.
