'10 Years of Fedora' t-shirt
awilliam at redhat.com

Hi, folks. Sorry I didn't do this earlier, but it kept coming at the
bottom of my priority list and I kept half-assing it :/
There is a project currently underway to distribute a commemorative
t-shirt for Fedora's 10th anniversary to significant contributors:
The people co-ordinating it contacted me to get a list of significant QA
contributors. I should've brought it to the list, but instead I just
kept putting it off and then quite hurriedly dashed off a list of
significant contributors for them a few weeks back.
I generated my list from the 'heroes of testing' blog posts (which
synthesize the numbers for release validation testing, bug submissions,
and karma), a bit of hacky analysis of my archive of the test@ mailing
list since I joined RH (in 2009) to find the most frequent posters, and
some ad hoc filtering - I dropped anyone who I know has worked for Red
Hat at any point as it seemed unfair for people who get paid to work on
Fedora to get schwag too, when it's limited (and I figured RHers are
usually drowning in schwag anyway, I know I am), and I dropped a couple
of people whose contributions to the list, while frequent, are known to
be...hem...not normally terrible productive.
The list I came up with was:
Thomas Gilliard (satellit)
Tore Anderson (IPv6 testing)
Edward Kirk (tk009)
"Clyde E. Kunkel"
"Robert P. J. Day"
If you don't recognize some of those names, check their Bodhi
submissions - there's a few people on the list who aren't very active on
test@ or in validation testing, but do a large amount of Bodhi feedback,
e.g. Bjoern Esser is the only person who's provided over 1000 Bodhi
I kept meaning to grab the mailing list archives from 2004-2009 as well
and update the list based on analysis of those, but haven't gotten
around to it yet. I'll try and do it after I send this mail.
Does anyone see any problems with the list I've generated so far? Any
names that are missing? I believe we still have time to amend the list.
I'll stick a topic on the Monday meeting agenda for this also. Thanks!
