#1 Dean Tessman? Missing?
Saturday March 16th, 2002 6:31 PM
The page lists Dean Tessman as last seen on September 1st last year. However, I saw him file bug 131346 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131346> on Friday and make a MozillaZine comment <http://www.mozillazine.or…le=2167&message=12#12> last Wednesday. Very prolific for a missing person! (I've emailed <firstname.lastname@example.org> about this.)
Ummm, no, I'm not missing. I'm right here. I've never left. I'm on IRC a couple times a week at least, and I'm constantly filing bugs, dupes, verifying, and attaching patches in bugzilla using that email address. I've sent an email and asked that I be removed entirely from that list, as that gives the impression that I'm not an active contributor to this project.

Well, the list is there to further relicensing issues, so you might want to talk to them about your willingness to triple-license as well. :)
Actually, as far as I can tell, everything JWZ ever contributed is owned by Netscape, so we don't need to ask him :-)
#3 What about contributors?

Some of us who worked on the Site Navigation Bar are still missing from the contributors list, who else do we have to bug besides <firstname.lastname@example.org>?
No-one else :-)
#9 Found quite a lot now

Looks like it's going well - loads of people have been found now.
Who is this Olav Vitters person? Does he work for the CIA or something? He's been responsible for over half of the finds so far!
I know - I'd never heard of him either. Go Olav!
Man, I wish I could find myself.
