As I said, no offence was meant to anyone else who has contributed, or
is contributing code to the project. I was mostly confining myself to
think of those with commit access, and / or major code projects cooking
which I know of.

(That is why I don't consider myself an active gEDA developer at the
moment.. all of my spare effort is going into PCB, and any patches I had
outstanding for gEDA are pretty stagnant.)
