Requests for comment/CREDITS
Jdlrobson notes: I came across a patch from a user who was keen to move himself from "Patch contributors" to "Developers" in the MediaWiki CREDITS file . It had been sitting there for over a year. He doesn't seem to have been active since. I don't know what to do with it. It made me think.
"Special:Version/Credits leads with 'We would like to recognize the following persons for their contribution to MediaWiki." - if someone is not in that list are they not as important?
- Abandon concept of developers vs contributors - have a single list
- Add a page on mediawiki.org to document the policy for being in this list.
- Put link to this page at top of credits page.
- Abandon CREDITS files, autogenerate this from commit history.
