django / AUTHORS

Full commit
Django was originally created in late 2003 at World Online, the Web division
of the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper in Lawrence, Kansas.

The PRIMARY AUTHORS are (and/or have been):

Adrian Holovaty <http://www.holovaty.com/>, who originally created Django with
Simon and currently oversees things with Jacob.

Simon Willison <http://simon.incutio.com/>, who originally created Django with
Adrian during his year-long internship/placement at World Online and currently
helps from the sidelines.

Jacob Kaplan-Moss <http://www.jacobian.org/>, who joined the team shortly
before Simon departed and currently oversees things with Adrian.

Wilson Miner <http://www.wilsonminer.com/>, who designed Django's admin
interface, pretty error pages, official Web site (djangoproject.com) and has
made many other contributions. He makes us look good.

Malcolm Tredinnick <http://www.pointy-stick.com/blog/>, who has made
significant contributions to all levels of the framework, from its database
layer to template system and documentation.

Georg "Hugo" Bauer <http://hugo.muensterland.org/>, who added
internationalization support, manages i18n contributions and has made a ton
of excellent tweaks, feature additions and bug fixes.

Luke Plant <http://lukeplant.me.uk/>, who has contributed many excellent
improvements, including database-level improvements, the CSRF middleware and
unit tests.

Russell Keith-Magee <freakboy@iinet.net.au>, who has contributed many excellent
improvements, including refactoring of the Django ORM code and unit tests.

Robert Wittams <http://robert.wittams.com/>, who majorly refactored the Django
admin application to allow for easier reuse and has made a ton of excellent
tweaks, feature additions and bug fixes.


And here is an inevitably incomplete list of MUCH-APPRECIATED CONTRIBUTORS --
people who have submitted patches, reported bugs, added translations, helped
answer newbie questions, and generally made Django that much better:

A big THANK YOU goes to:

    Rob Curley and Ralph Gage for letting us open-source Django.

    Frank Wiles for making excellent arguments for open-sourcing, and for
    his sage sysadmin advice.

    Ian Bicking for convincing Adrian to ditch code generation.

    Mark Pilgrim for diveintopython.org.

    Guido van Rossum for creating Python.
