Typo fix in spec - fixes bug 1197
[exim.git] / src / ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
3 This file is divided into two parts. The first is the original list maintained
4 by Exim's author, Philip Hazel, before he retired. That has two sub-lists of
5 contributors. The second main part is an attempt to bring this up-to-date,
6 using information from ChangeLog and git.
8 Names may well occur more than once.
10 There was a five year gap. It is unlikely that this file is complete.
11 If you contributed and are not listed, then *please* let us know. Even if you
12 don't much care, we want to acknowledge your help. A contribution isn't just
13 code, it includes reporting real bugs, helping with tracking problems down,
14 documentation fixes and more.
16 (Note that we have patches from folks in various countries and Latin1 is not
17 sufficient to handle all of their names acceptably.
18 This file should be in UTF-8).
20 -Phil Pennock, pp The Exim Maintainers.
22 ============================8< cut here >8==============================
24 I have not been very good at keeping a proper record of all the people who have
25 sent in patches and other contributions to Exim. I am going to try to do better
26 in the future by keeping a record in this file. First, I'll put a list of all
27 those I can recover from the past; then I'll create a new list to which I'll
28 add new contributors in future. Some regular contributors may appear in both.
30 I'm going to record people who send in actual patches or who help in detailed
31 ways. I'm not going to list people who just make a suggestion or report a
32 bug. I hope that is a reasonable approach.
34 If you should be on one of these lists and are not, please accept my apologies,
35 and let me know! Any omissions are solely due to my incompetence. In
36 particular, the "past" list has certainly lost the names of people who sent in
37 relatively small patches.

309 The Exim Maintainers Lists
310 ==========================
312 We'll start with the Exim Maintainers, who are the people with commit
313 access to the master git repository and a couple more folk; then we'll list
314 known contributors since the lists above. Then we list the folks who work
315 to make Exim available on various operating systems as porters/packagers.
317 For the Maintainers, we may list primary focus area. All maintainers
318 will have contributed to work outside those areas. The maintainers'
319 contributions are initialled in ChangeLog. Changes from before maintainership
320 should be listed as a contributor.
322 For other contributors, we will attempt to track all contributions. Note that
323 the entries per-person were added initially by scanning back through the
324 ChangeLog and git, so are not in chronological order.
326 [ With names from all over the world, we need one sort order. I've arbitrarily
327 decreed it to be "normal British address-book sort order, but based on family
328 name rather than whichever comes last and using whatever seems sanest for
329 sort order of characters which do not collate onto an English character",
330 which should handle the majority of cases. If it is not adequate for some
331 situation, we'll resolve it then.
332 We leave out titles and honourifics, just names and handles. ]
