Hi Walter,

On github as far as I can tell, the developer is only acknowledged as a 
contributor. So the loss of this information seems a byproduct of the 
move to github. I would appreciate advice as how the developer can be 
promoted short of them becoming a contributor and making some update to 
an activity.
