#3207: Contributors in plugins/update-check/1.1/

 I am working on a Core enhancement
 (https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/42255) to notify site operators
 when a plugin they are about to update has changed contributor(s) since
 the last update. (Basically help deal with cases where a good plugin has
 been sold to bad people and turned evil.) Haha.

 From the Core's point of view, the lightest way to receive the remote half
 of the equation would be to just have `contributors` returned from the
 http://api.wordpress.org/plugins/update-check/1.1/ call.

 Is this a practical ask from the API side of things?

 The format returned by `plugins/info/1.0/` would work well, e.g:

 "contributors": {
    "blobfolio": "https:\/\/profiles.wordpress.org\/blobfolio"
