Developer Log
=============

This file is a running log of developers given permissions on SourceForge.

The purpose is to provide some institutional memory of who was given access
and why.

The first entry starts in April 2005.  In keeping with the style of
Misc/NEWS, newer entries should be added to the top.  Any markup should
be in the form of ReST.  Entries should include the initials of the
project admin who made the change or granted access.  Feel free to revise
the format to accommodate documentation needs as they arise.

Note, when giving new commit permissions, be sure to get a contributor
agreement from the committer.  See http://www.python.org/psf/contrib/
for details.  When the agreement is signed, please note it in this log.
