[rfc-i] contributors section & tools

I believe Jari's script attempts to do this and counts Contributors in the
author stats it generates

The script is very vulnerable to formatting errors and since the
Contributors section is usually hand-crafted, the script often misses people
or documents.

Jari always welcomes fixes to the scripts. Last I looked there were lots of
"IF RFC=abcd THEN make this special exception"

Subject: [rfc-i] contributors section & tools

Is there any tool from e.g.: the IETF or Arkko publishing houses that
actually deparses names
in a contributors section and does something with that information ?
(aka: allows recognition stats like they are done for authors) ?

I could not find anything in RFC 7749 that would allow me semantic tagging
of contributors,
Am i wrong ?

If not, then parsing would have to be difficult and heuristic, and i
therefore fear the answer to my
above question is NO ?

Wasthere not a time when we wanted to make contirbutors better recognizeable
