It's been about a year now that we've moved the repository to Mercurial.
yann@1975
    71
The repository now has proper authorship for each changeset, and this is
yann@1975
    72
used to build the changelog at each release. This file will probably no
yann@1975
    73
longer be updated, and is here to credit people prior to the Mercurial
yann@1975
    74
migration, or for people discussing ideas or otherwise helping without
yann@1975
    75
code.
