[vertaling] order of author lines, retiring long-inactive translators

Hello all team members,
For a long time the robot compared the Last-Translator field of a PO
file with the first of the author lines -- the comment lines at the
top, after the copyright lines -- and then sometimes muttered about
them not being the same. It doesn't do that any more. It now
instead compares the Last-Translator field with the _last_ of the
author lines, and checks that these mention the same person, and if
the names differ mutters something about the correct order for these
lines: chronological. At some point in the future it will reject
PO files for which this check fails.
Something else. Quite a few translators have not been active for
several years now but are still listed on some of the team pages.
In the coming week I will go through these lists and remove
everyone who hasn't submitted a PO file in over five years. During
a second run next week the limit will be dropped to three years.
Does this seem reasonable, or would you want to draw the line
somewhere else? (There needs to be a limit of some kind, or
otherwise some of these team lists would grow indefinitely.)
