Hi people! Perhaps you remember that effort started some months ago to
try to get a good listing of Rails contributors:
I got plenty of feedback and kept maintaining the list in this gist:
I am happy to announce that we've turned that script into a simple
webapp that will run under contributors.rubyonrails.org or
www.rubyonrails.org/contributors. You can check it out now without
I am very glad this is going to be public, it gives credit to hundreds
of people that have contributed to the project (about 1400 at this
moment). And it is a good indicator in my view of the agility and
openness of Rails as an open source project. Also you can just point
to that data when someone says it is hard to contribute to Rails, a
myth I've heard sometimes.
The app is mostly finished at this point, I may add some caching and
more tests but that's it.
The current name normalization is explained here:
If you know of anyone who may help wit the design that'd be really great!
If you discover any missing name equivalence please just PM me somewhere.
