    I'm creating a credit screen to go with the title screen, and finding it difficult to know exactly who to put on it.  Here is what I'm currently planning:

    ---------------------------------------
    THE EDGE TEAM
    Andrew Baker, Andrew Apted
    Marc Pullen, Luke Brennan

    PREVIOUS MEMBERS
    Erik Sandberg, Kester Maddock
    Ziggy Gnarly, Sidearm Joe
    Captain Mellow

    DECENDED FROM DosDoom 0.61 by Chi Hoang

    http://edge.sourceforge.net/
    ---------------------------------------

    The previous members part is the sticking point. I think Kester had left when DosDoom became EDGE. But there are too many people if we go all the way back to DosDoom (David Leatherdale, John Coles, Martin Howe, etc etc).

      I'd be more sparse that that. Remove the "previous members" sections and the "descended from" statement  - and instead have a special thanks section instead. I would include Chi Hoang, Erik Sandberg and Kester Maddock. Everybody else gets shipped off to a contributors list in CREDITS. I suspect that a future development would be a scrolling view of this CREDITS file.

      FWIW, The version of DOSDoom we branched from was 0.653. I'm not sure it was every released without checking.

      That sounds good.

      As for dosdoom, the one I've got is version 0.64.

      My stuff (the original walking over/under monsters code) got superceded years ago; heck, I was surprised to be included in the V1.27 credits screen :) Still, it'd be nice to be in a "past contributors" list. Go for it!

        A "past contributors" list is a good idea.  I reckon we'll add a section in the standard README file, and also put it on the web page when the overhaul is finally done.
