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.

  project to enhance mailbox.  Brett Cannon requested access for Flovis
  Bruynooghe (sirolf) to work on pstats, profile, and hotshot.  Both users
  are expected to work primarily in nondist/sandbox and have their work

  by RDH.  Since the beginning of 2005, he has been active in discussions
  on python-dev and has submitted a dozen patch reviews.  The permissions
  add the ability to change tracker status and to attach patches.  On

- Nick Coghlan was given SF tracker permissions on 5 Apr 2005 by RDH.
  For several months, he has been active in reviewing and contributing
  patches.  The added permissions give him greater flexibility in
  working with the tracker.

  specifically to work on the new ``decimal`` package, which lived in
  ``nondist/sandbox/decimal/`` at the time.
