I wrote this update for AUTHORS because it's the first place anyone is likely
to look for a list of authors (seems sensible!). If the list is incomplete,
please go ahead and update the list with whoever i've missed out (like you --
sorry!!). The idea is that any new contributers can add their names when they
first help out so the list keeps up-to-date.

Not all people who helped with the gimp are plugin maintainers, and not
everyone hangs out on gimp-developer (if thats what you meant). Perhaps a note
at the bottom of AUTHORS with relevent links would be useful though. Regarding
the list in about_dialog.c, you shouldn't have to look through source
code/launch the program to see the authors listing IMHO.

Let me know if this has changed your opinion at all!
