ACKNOWLEDGMENTS updates: missed anyone?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: RIPEMD160

Folks,

I've gone over the ACKNOWLEDGMENTS file in Exim; as an Open Source
project, we live or die by the contributions of the community. We'd
let the file stagnate, using references in ChangeLog and in git commits
instead. We never missed anyone, but we didn't call out folks as much
as we could have.

I've gone over the changes and the names reported by the committers as
they improved Exim, but it's possible you have been missed. If you've
contributed to Exim, please look over the file:

http://git.exim.org/exim.git/blob/HEAD:/src/ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

and let me know if I missed you out, pointing out what you did, and I'll
rectify the situation.

Thank you all,
- -Phil

Phil,

Thank you for that. And my thanks to one and all who have 'carried the
mail', lo these many years now.

As time has been passing, I'd suggest adding, so future joiners don't
forget, next to Phil Hazel's entry:

'Originating architect and author of the Exim project"

....or something of similar nature.

And next to your own:

'Dispatcher and principle Cat Herder, by default if not consensus.'

..or such.

I'm also grateful there is no entry for:

'Enduring contrarian and general pain in the a**',

...as I, too, am retiring.

;-)

Bill

I'm missing a "Very satisfied users" category. ;-)

In line 362 I'm being credited for something I probably didn't do, I
don't use QNX so I really don't think I found some mistake unless it was
something very obvious. Probably it was somebody else.

commit c7c4ae90a7a7b9fc474e246e9a0d47ddf519117f
Author: Phil Pennock <pdp@exim.org>
Date: Sun May 20 03:48:53 2012 -0400

"make makfile" -> "make makefile".

Confirmed typo, rather than QNXism, by grepping tree and finding no
other instances.

Reported by René Berber.
----------------------------8< cut here >8------------------------------

Part of the QNX section, almost at the end of the README file.

Attention to detail which fixed false instructions.

-Phil
