Keywords: contributors, who-is-who

This is the current list of Linux contributors.  It is woefully
inadequate.  The kindest thing I can say about it is that,
since it is so short, if you name is not on it, you shouldn't
feel to bad.

Nonetheless, I am posting it here for two reasons.  

 1) It is included in the "Using SLS" booklet which accompanies the SLS
	CDROM, and 
 2) it was sent to Matt for possible inclusion with LDP

If you are absent and want to be counted, send me a note.
If you are shy and want to be removed, ditto.

Herein find a very week attempt at accrediting work to some of the pio-
neers who helped shape Linux to its current form. This is almost certainly
doomed to failure, since no one can really keep track of such a complex
process. Nevertheless, it would be neglegant not to try. So here goes. The
