Wiki – List of contributors

Post by Tirifto » 18 Apr 2017, 12:12

Hello all!

The TMW Team page on the Wiki suggests that there should be a list of contributors at the bottom.
This group includes all past and present conributors to the project. From testers to former Developers. People who help with the project casually are also listed here.
However, there seems to be no list as of now. Could it be either added to the page or excluded from it and linked to from elsewhere, so that we have an easily discoverable place that mentions all contributors? There appear to be various lists scattered around the Wiki and the rest of the internet. Please find some examples below.

For TMW rE, the list of contributor can be found at https://gitlab.com/evol/evol-tools/blob ... butors.xml
There is an XSL file that translate that xml into markdown for evol's wiki, it should be alterable for TMW's wiki, on the meanwhile we can redirect these links to the xml file on git.
Although, don't remove any legacy contributors, they are contributor to the project before anything else!

I was going to sort this out, but Reid pointed out that if we alter the XSL file we can have a list for public reference on the wiki without too much trouble. I guess the XSL should be on the todo list, and as always feel free to contribute.

The thing is that usually we add new contributors directly on that xml file and then we run a command that update it on the wiki, the client and anywhere else we want.
I did it through makefile + XSL, it is maybe not the best solution but I wanted to train myself at XSL at that time. :)
If anyone want to make a script of any sort to do it, it is free to you, else, the xsl should be easy to change, no coding knowledge should be required, you only need to compare the list format of evol's dokuwiki and tmw's mediawiki platforms.
