40e8824d jay2005-01-08 12:26:34 +00003I do not know the name of the original author of the findutils
4package, but the authors of all the major components are known. Eric
5B. Decker contributed GNU find and Michael Rendell contributed xargs.

8Here are the names of some authors culled from ChangeLog and
40e8824d jay2005-01-08 12:26:34 +00009miscellaneous other files. The main criterion for whether your name
10ends up in this file or in THANKS is that the people with entries here
11donated code or documentation which was significant enough to require
12a copyright assignment.

14The locate program and its helper programs are derived (heavily
15modified) from James Woods' public domain fast-find code, which is
16also distributed with the 4.3BSD find.

32The current maintainer of the findutils package is James Youngman.
33Questions about findutils should be addressed to the mailing list,
34<> which, contrary to the impression given by its
35name, is used for general discussion of the findutils package.
