I like this idea and would be happy to set it up. If nobody has any objections, I'll put together a template and then solicit content for it. I wonder if there would be an easy way of automating it so that if you submit a patch, you can optionally submit information about yourself that would fill in this page.

Some ideas:

We can create 3 sections:

  • Main Team
    People whoe maintain Tahoe-LAFS.
    for example: zooko, brian, warner, davidsarah, etc.
  • Contributors
    People who contribute with buildbot, coding, reviewing, features, etc.
  • Donators
    A list of people who give money to Tahoe-LAFS project

For section "Main Team" and "Contributors" we can create a small profile.
something like:

  • Picture
  • Nickname
  • Country
  • Age
  • What he did/do for Tahoe-LAFS

For donators, just a list of name

You could start with the CREDITS file for an example. I suggest to lump everyone in as Contributors for now, because otherwise someone will have to decide whether a given person's contributions or current status or whatever qualify them for Main Team or not, and spending time thinking about that seems like wasted effort.

Good idea for the CREDITS file

What do you think about a wiki page?
Or maybe you want the page can be edited only by some persons.

Secorp do you want to take this ticket?

I put together a first pass here:


I'm sure it's missing some people, but I think it's a good first pass.

Once reviewed, I'll link it to the front page.

  • Owner changed from nobody to secorp
  • Status changed from new to assigned

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Type changed from defect to task

I think the page is pretty good as stands, though we didn't put in age, country, or anything like that. Maybe we can open up another issue to track with modifications, it feels like that information might want to come from an interesting identity management source.
