"Top Contributors" sidebar for community site

Description (last modified by ewinslow)
In order to motivate core/plugin contributions, I propose we make a dedicated space on the side of the community site to showcase the devs who have recently contributed the most to Elgg. This is essentially an in-your-face leaderboard that highly rewards contributions by getting the entire community familiar with the names + faces of the contributors.
There are a few details here that need to be determined:
- How many people do we show?
- Once people earn a spot, how long do they stay?
- How do we quantify a developer's rank?
- Can we automate this at all?
- What if someone doesn't want to be on the leaderboard?
- What about non-developers?
