done major non-trivial ports, or provided substantial organizational
labor.  Please *OMIT* authors of GPL programs which have been ported
to Linux by someone other than (one of) the original author(s).

exhaustive, I'm sure):

init, getty, login (Peter Orbaek)
pfdisk (Ben Lippolt)
FAQ maintainer (Marc CORSINI)		tytso@Athena.MIT.EDU (Theodore Ts'o)

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
