Think i am gonna have to ask this (after watching the google vid..)
I think that this (as the project grows) will become a big issue and we should set out a policy that we stick to now.

But how are we gonna credit ppls work?

I think the svn group have it right that there should be no names in code. I Think a simple credit.h file intergrated into the About dialog seperated into 3 sections:

Active Devs:

Inactive Devs:

Patch Submissions:

Peoples names only go in once and into one of the 3 slots.

eg:

Active Devs:
Phil

Inactive Devs:
Ingyu Kang (Creator)

Patch Submissions:
Pvt_Ryan

then if a patch submitter becomes more active then they get moved to Active Devs if a Dev leaves the project then they get put into inactive devs.

There is only 1 prob with my method and that is how many patches do you need to submit / what do you have to do to become a dev.

Thoughts please..

Sounds good. I have very little open source experience; so I don't know how these types of things should be done. It is probably good for us to set up these things though to avoid controversy.

In the one open source program I contributed to before, they just gave a change list for each release and put the names of the guys who worked on that change beside the feature. That might be something to consider.

Heh. Another Pidgin/gaim thing. Last I remembered they did what Phil mentioned. Personally I don't see an issue with that, because with an open source program, contributors aren't usually looking for credit, they're just trying to make the program nicer.
