what I meant about the THANKS and AUTHORS files is that the role of the
AUTHORS file is not really well defined as some people are listed in
this file and some are not. Moreover the THANKS file also contains
different kind of people.

What I suggest is to:
 * put in the AUTHORS file every people with commit access and only
these people. This is a simple rule to fill in this file.
 * about the THANKS file we can rename this file to something like
CONTRIBUTORS and put every people who has contributed to vlc by sending
patches and are not present in the AUTHORS file.
 * Do we split translators from contributors ?
 * Do we add somewere people who did a big donation ?

Best regards
