8 This file documents the developers, major contributors, and groups who've
9 developed and maintained Eggdrop. A full list of contributors can be found
10 in the file THANKS. Contributor information for specific versions of Eggdrop
11 can be found in the corresponding doc/Changes files.
12
13 Eggdrop was originally written by Robey Pointer. Versions 0.6 through 1.0o
14 and 1.1alpha-lincoln through 1.1alpha-grant were developed by Robey from
15 December 1993 through February 1997. As of version 1.0n, Robey relicensed
16 Eggdrop under the GNU GPL. Robey's relicensing also allows for earlier
17 versions of Eggdrop to be licensed under the GNU GPL. After version
18 1.1alpha-grant, Robey gave up his position as Eggdrop's maintainer.
19
20 Version 1.0p was a maintenance release put together by Wade in March 1997
21 made from Eggdrop community patches. Later 1.0 series bugfix and maintenance
22 releases were made by other Eggdrop community members.
23
24 Eggdrop 1.1 development continued after 1.1alpha-grant with significant
25 contributions from many Eggdrop community members. While it would be
26 impossible to include a full list of contributors for each version in this
27 file, below is a list of some of the major contributors and core Eggdrop
28 community during 1.1alpha and 1.1.x:
29
30 Beldin, ButchBub, cmwagner, dk, dtM, EraseMe, Ernst, Lefty, LuckyStar,
31 poptix, Robey, Wade, Wild
32
33 Around version 1.1.1, Beldin took on Robey's former role of lead developer
34 and maintainer. Beldin and many other developers later regrouped as
35 eggdrop.org and developed Eggdrop up through version 1.3.23.
36
37 Below is a partial list of major contributors and core Eggdrop community
38 members during 1.2 and 1.3 up through version 1.3.23:
39
40 Beldin, BoGuS, ButchBub, Daklop, dk, dtM, easton, Ernst, KingKurly, Kirk,
41 Melvan, |mmortal, NC, poptix, Q, Raistlin, smok, tdmarti, TheGhost, vod,
42 wheely, zarni
43
44 After version 1.3.23, Beldin decided to discontinue development of the 1.3.x
45 branch and instead focus solely on 'Eggdrop2' development.
46
47 Unfortunately, 'Eggdrop2' took more resources to compile and run than 1.3.x.
48 Most users also found it difficult and sometimes impossible to compile
49 because it lacked the portability of previous versions due to having been
50 written in C++ instead of C. Because of its limitations, users continued to
51 favor the more established 1.3.x codebase.
52
53 After Beldin and a number of other developers publicly stated their intent
54 to discontinue all development of 1.3.x after 1.3.23, a new development
55 group began to form made up of other Eggdrop community members. This group
56 eventually organized as eggheads.org.
57
58 Because of the large number of outstanding bugs in 1.3.23 and community
59 interest in continuing 1.3.x development, a new version was created from the
60 numerous patches that had piled up after work on 1.3.x had stopped. This new
61 version was released as 1.3.24i. The 'i' stood for independent and was
62 intended to show that this release was independent of the "official"
63 development group. The 'i' was dropped for the 1.3.25 and later releases.
64
65 Below is a list of developers and contributors for version 1.3.24i released
66 by eggheads.org on March 5, 1999:
67
68 arthur2, Bass, Beige, Crotale, Daemus, deadgrrrl, Dude, guppy, Lobo^Loco,
69 Niggurath, paralyse, Shayne, slennox, TheUnknown, TiTi, Tothwolf, vod,
70 Whicked
71
72 Eggdrop development after 1.3.24i has continued under eggheads.org up through
73 versions 1.4.x, 1.5.x and currently 1.6.x.
