#898: GEOS AUTHORS file is ancient
 Reporter:  robe        |      Owner:  geos-devel@…
     Type:  defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  minor       |  Milestone:  3.6.3
Component:  Default     |    Version:  3.6.2
 Severity:  Unassigned  |   Keywords:
 I was going to add our new developers to the list.

 Something I neglected doing and then I discover what appears to be an
 authors list hasn't been updated in a decade.

 We should either update it or chuck it.


 Most notably missing, though I'm probably forgetting some folks:

 Howard Butler
 Dan Baston
 Kurt Schwehr
 Vicky Vergara

 People that should be moved to "In Active":

 Frank Warmerdam
 Mateusz Loskot (as much as I love him and wish he didn't leave us, I will
 weep a couple of tears when I move him to the "In Active" bin)

 BTW I don't think "In Active" is the right term here or is that
 intentional  - who wrote this?  I think it should be Inactive or did we
 mean a different kind of "Active"?

 By the way, I noticed there is an event track in this file. Isn't that
 what NEWS is for and if not move it to like a CREDITS file.

 Can we have AUTHORS just be an AUTHORS file?
