I just visited Packt Publishing's award page and found that Earl Miles 
(merlinofchaos) was voted as one of the Most Valued People from Open 
Source Content Management Systems (try wearing that title on a 
T-shirt!).  There are other projects besides Drupal listed.  What I 
found interesting is that most of the MVPs for projects were the 
projects'  lead/founder.  Perhaps that says something about Drupal truly 
being community driven.  Link at: 

    PacktPub.com <http://www.packtpub.com> has been accepting MVP
    nominations since early July and for the majority of Content
    Management Systems, there were a number of candidates that received
    enthusiastic support. This demonstrates how many different people
    are key to the sucess of a CMS and how difficult it is to select an
    individual as the person who has contributed the most.

    The following list of names were put forward by members of the
    Content Management System's development team and community and
    represent the exceptional support, guidance, and sheer amount of
    time that the MVPs have given up to support the development and
    growth of the respective CMS.

    Congratulations to those who were selected as the first annual Open
    Source CMS MVPs.
