The separate Firefox About box credits list has gone away in the new About box design, and so about:credits, the Mozilla project’s permanent project-wide list of contributors, needs to pick up the slack.
If you are in the About box credits list for Firefox 3.6 and not yet in about:credits, or if you think you fit the criteria (see below), please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you added.
We like to give people a “shout out” with a summary of their contributions so far in the checkin comment when checking their names in, something like this:
: "Contributor to SUMO, plus writing many Litmus, MozMill and Selenium testcases" Shankar Prasad "Translating Firefox into Kannada (kn)" Curtis Bartley : "For making view source not suck, and for building about:support, the tool of SUMO's dreams."
So please do provide one of those.
The criteria for about:credits inclusion is having “made a significant investment of time, with useful results, into Mozilla project-governed activities.” Note “Mozilla project-governed activites” – there are loads of things people do, like telling their friends about Mozilla, which are great things to do but for which we have other sorts of credit mechanism.
If you think I might not recognize your name, providing evidence of your contribution will speed the inclusion process. I will do the additions in batches, so please don’t expect it to happen right away. But I’ll definitely do a batch before the 4.0 release.
