3EXIM ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
4
5I have not been very good at keeping a proper record of all the people who have
6sent in patches and other contributions to Exim. I am going to try to do better
7in the future by keeping a record in this file. First, I'll put a list of all
8those I can recover from the past; then I'll create a new list to which I'll
9add new contributors in future. Some regular contributors may appear in both.
10
11I'm going to record people who send in actual patches or who help in detailed
12ways. I'm not going to list people who just make a suggestion or report a
13bug. I hope that is a reasonable approach.
14
15If you should be on one of these lists and are not, please accept my apologies,
16and let me know! Any omissions are solely due to my incompetence. In
17particular, the "past" list has certainly lost the names of people who sent in
18relatively small patches.
