follows is my list of credit for the web-based Forum stuff .... for
starters, the contributors to this existing FAQ (not sure I've got a 100%
identity list, don't have permission to use real names, and will probably
add more items into this FAQ and forget to update this list .. apologies in
advance for missing the kudos and correct attributions) ... and just to keep
