The list could be updated by using the Git log, for example:

git log --pretty=format:"%an" *.po | sort -u

It might take some massaging to eliminate the same person using 
different names/spellings or nick names, but it probably wouldn't be 
that hard (the list is fairly short).

The procedure to get one's self listed in the About dialog could simply 
be that you provide Git patches with your real, full name, or whoever 
commits the changes uses the --author option to add the name when doing 
the commit.

Just an idea.
