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.

You are right, but if they put every person on there who contributed a bug report, it would be too long to really mean anything. Or would it?
You have to admit, the major task of Mozilla is coding, whether it be new code, or fixing old code.
Whatever, let it be.
