Reconcile contributors from old CodePlex people


The following people used to be listed on the "People" tab of CodePlex, but their possible contributions are not immediately apparent by searching the credits/code on these aliases. May want to reconcile this somehow, or just go with omitting them from credits.txt unless they speak up? Or we may just want to get the oldest SVN history here (if we can) to see if we can verify any contributors, etc.

I don't remember any of these people from before.

I also have some old backups of wheelmud from before the data was lost; this includes A LOT of checkin with the names of he people who committed them, Looking at the check in history I dont' even think many of these people actually did anything.

I'm assuming these people are either "drive by contributors" who added themselves as contributors yet did no real work, or they worked on it after the dates of my backup.

Needless to say, if they been real contributors and had flowed the template we would be able to find their names in the code base; I can STILL find my username in several files, years later, due to my strict following of the rules. As it is, we had a lot of people who either only used the forum or simply checked nothing in except the addition of their name to the credits.txt file.

I did a keyword search of my backup and could not find any of these people in the history of the code base, although I did remember "ckittel " from his very minimal posting on the forums around the time I left and even oddly enough reached out to him on twitter a few days ago; he does not have any time to do anything like this and stated so.

Oh and just for fun here is what happens when I try to actually look at the log history of this backup:

C:\Users\Duane\Desktop\tmp\WheelMud\WheelMud\src>svn log
svn: E155036: Please see the 'svn upgrade' command
svn: E155036: The working copy at 'C:\Users\Duane\Desktop\tmp\WheelMud\WheelMud\
is too old (format 10) to work with client version '1.8.11 (r1643975)' (expects
format 31). You need to upgrade the working copy first.
