Hmm..I did list the names based on the past year's additions (though
somewhat arbitrarily).
Should we then again decide who goes in the list and in what order (if
the current one
feels inadequate)?

I would prefer this to just 'Wibowo Arindrarto and the Biopython
contributors', though, so that the attribution is more proper :).

My bad. Yes then, I'll go with 'Biopython Project Update 2014'.

Shall I make this repo? This sounds like the right place to put the abstract :).
