New 'Credits' Page at

Friday August 27th, 1999

Dawn Endico has just posted to 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.

#6 what about the linux credit method?

With the linux source code there is a credits file that contains: Name, Contact method, and "area of work"... This alows people that want to submit recommendations and changes to send to the right people... or if someone is looking to hire a good 'test case' developer they can find him/her in the mozilla credits.

Just my two cents :)
