Notes to contributors

  • The contributors table on the Main Page is generated from the Mercurial repository and the block of additional data below. Edit that data to add the accented letters on your name, add a link to your homepage, and fill the last column.
  • In the last column, feel free to describe your contributions however you like. It's yours. It's hard for anyone else than you to fill it, because in many cases you made too diverse contributions to be fairly summarized in one short line, so only you can decide what you want to write there.
  • "No information" typically means that you sent anonymous patches, which was the only option at the time of SVN. Now that we are using Mercurial, as soon as you have configured it with your identity, you get credited for patches.
  • The Credits are updated twice a week by Thomas's cron job, so the changes you make will take a few days to be reflected.

Additional data

This data is parsed in the following format:

 MercurialName|RealName|HomePage|LastColumn

Notice that each line must have exactly 3 vertical bars, no less, no more. The two last fields may be empty.

Here,

  • MercurialName is your full name as known by Mercurial. If you haven't used mercurial, just let it be your full name.
  • RealName is how your want your full name actually printed. For example, if your MercurialName misses accented letters, you can add them here.
  • HomePage is the URL to your web page
  • LastColumn is as explained above
