#4697: Backfill Credits API data for older releases

 Background: #577, #3114.

 At the moment, the
 [source:sites/trunk/api.wordpress.org/public_html/core/credits 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:


 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.
