Never denied that. The term is "key contributor" and it is arrived at on
the basis of some count, which is questionable.

An analogy: if you are working in a software project, can you call someone
who did maximum commit operations in your source code repository as "key
contributor"?

If yes, I'd just opt out of the debate ...
