In early 2007, Gary started contributing a lot of cleanup fixes and fixing
broken windows. He's continued to do that necessary tidying up work
throughout the code base since then.
+ Karen has a background in distributed operating systems (graduate school),
+ communications software (industry) and crossword puzzle construction
+ (freelance). The last of these brought her to Django, in late 2006, when
+ she set out to put a web front-end on her crossword puzzle database.
+ That done, she stuck around in the community answering questions, debugging
+ problems, etc. -- because coding puzzles are as much fun as word puzzles.
