The personal Thank-Yous of Maxym Mykhalchuk (Merak release coordinator), of course subject to my personal feelings and in no particular order. I owe those people certainly more than I've written after "for", but that'd be too long to write here:

  • to Jesse Glick, for answering very many (really many) my stupid questions.
  • to Vincent Brabant, for constant support of my initiative - answering in the newsgroups ab' Merak, announcing, writing nice html docs...
  • to James Gordon, for the e-mail storm :-)
  • to Sergey Samoshkin, for not discharging me from the office.

If you are not listed here but feel you should be, please let us know and please give details of your contribution: for example, references to mailing list archives, Issuezilla, CVS commits, etc.

Many thanks also go to the people who contributed ideas or gave time to help others on the mailing lists.
