I think we some time ago came to the conclusion that the one who 
actually takes care of the package _now_ is the Maintainer, and everyone 
who formerly maintained the package is a contributor.

IMHO exactly this are the meanings of the words "maintainer" and 
"contributor". But I may be completely wrong.

Regarding your packages:
makedepends=('autoconf' 'automake' 'libtool' 'pkgconfig') is not needed 
(cairo-ubuntu). All these tools are in base-devel.
