Eterm Credits and Thanks


I firmly believe in giving credit where it is due. I have made every effort to include the name and e-mail address of everyone who has helped along the way in the ChangeLog that comes with Eterm, but unfortunately there are too many to list here. The people I mention on this page are those who have made a very significant or very visible contribution to the project who I feel would not otherwise receive sufficient acknowledgement for their efforts. So if you don't see your name here, please don't feel that your work has gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Feel free to drop me a note if you feel you've been excluded unfairly.

I've been approached regarding donations to the Eterm project. I do not solicit donations. Ever. Particularly not from users of Eterm. However, I know a number of commercial interests use (and make profit from) products which include or are based on Eterm or parts thereof. Since I normally make no money off my Eterm work, if you do, it might be nice if you share the wealth. :) If you are a regular Eterm user, please do not feel the need to donate. You will only see this information on this page and nowhere else for that very reason. This is only here to assist those who feel led to contribute. Donations may be made via Paypal (account, plastic, or e-check) here:

So Who Is Responsible for All This Stuff?

Michael Jennings
IRC Nickname: mej or KainX
Home Page: http://www.kainx.org/
E-mail Address: mej@eterm.org


That's me. :-) I am the principle designer and programmer for the Eterm project. I also wrote libast and all the PHP code for this web site. At present, I am employed as a Linux Consultant for n + 1, Inc.

Teodor Zlatanov
IRC Nickname: tzz
  E-mail Address: tzz@iglou.com


Ted is the co-author for Eterm. Well, he will be anyway. :) To date, he's primarily been a sounding board for my thoughts and ideas, and he's been very good at it! Talking to him gave me the idea for the new background management system, among other things. He is also going to help me with a huge undertaking in the next stage of development, so look for big things to come. :-)

Sung-Hyun Nam
IRC Nickname: namsh
  E-mail Address: namsh@lgic.co.kr


Sung-Hyun Nam is almost single-handedly responsible for all the multibyte and XIM support that currently exists in Eterm. Being an American with a standard 104-key US keyboard, it's rather difficult for me to develop and test input for Asian locales. He's been a tremendous help in both code submission and debugging, so thanks again to namsh! :-)

Lily James
IRC Nickname: lilyj
Home Page: http://lily.richlowe.net/


Lily is a professional web designer and graphic artist, and as you can see, she's very good at it. Lily is solely responsible for the creation of the new Eterm.Org logo that appears up top. She also created the look and feel for the entire site; all my PHP code is based off her original mock-up of the front page. I think the new design is a vast improvement over anything we've had before. Thanks, Lily, you did a fantastic job! :-)

The Enlightenment Project
IRC Nickname: raster, mandrake, cK, term, ...
Home Page: http://www.enlightenment.org/
E-mail Address: enlightenment-devel@lists.sourceforge.net


Eterm, as the name implies, has always been a child project of the Enlightenment window manager. The support and feedback from the E team has always been very important to the success of this project, and their continued efforts on behalf of Eterm are much appreciated.

Greg Sanders and the Whole Themes.org Staff
IRC Nickname: ElCoronel, starlady, Fuzebox, artwiz, Demonishi, ...
Home Page: http://themes.org/
E-mail Address: feedback@themes.org


The entire team at themes.org has been very supportive of Eterm throughout its existence. They've even let me join them in a game or three of Laser Quest! :-) Thanks to Greg, Trey, and everyone else who's been there from the beginning.

VA Linux Systems, Inc.
IRC Nickname: Too many to list! =)
Home Page: http://www.valinux.com/
E-mail Address: info@valinux.com


Though VA Linux (my former employer) hasn't specifically contributed any code to Eterm, they are also the creator and primary sponsor of SourceForge, the 100% free-as-in-beer open source development and collaboration site which currently hosts all the Eterm resources.
