New 'Credits' Page at Mozilla.org

Friday August 27th, 1999

Dawn Endico has just posted to mozilla.org a "credits" page which lists contributors to Mozilla. Eventually, the page will come up when you type about:credits in the Mozilla location field. In Dawn's posting to the mozilla.seamonkey newsgroup, she writes, "I created the page by compiling a list of 614 email addresses. These came from the list of people with cvs access, people who are credited by their email addresses in the cvs checkin logs, and people who have submitted attachments to bugzilla. People whose names I already had were added directly to the list... At the end, I added some friends of the tree from the weekly status update and now have 544 names. (309 with cvs access 160 from the cvslog, and 70 from bugzilla)."

Pretty impressive list, I'd say. If you feel that you have been left of the list, or another important contributor is missing, there are instructions on how to submit a new name at the bottom of the credits page.


#2 I want my name on there...

By your reasoning Netscape QA wouldn't 'deserve' to be listed as 'contributors.' Now, this makes absolutely no sense. I think that anyone who has put a lot of time into the bug system, as in filing bugs, marking bugs as dups, or making testcase for existing bugs is an important contributor. After all, people on the net who do who do those things are doing for free what some Netscape employees are paid to do.

My name is on the list, and I certainly think it deserves to be, even though I've not contributed one line of C++.
