This file contains the names of people who have contributed to the development of the BNETD server in some way. This project has made an enormous amount of progress since the development has become public, and this is one place where members of the community can be thanked.
The following people have contributed code, code ideas, bug fixes, and debugging work:
Mark Baysinger (firstname.lastname@example.org) For the original idea, original implementation, documentation of the protocol, starhack.ml.org, the tracking server, etc.
Ross Combs (email@example.com) Various cleanups, release coordination, / commands, config files, etc.
Rob Crittenden (firstname.lastname@example.org) For many bug fixes, protocol work, file downloads, man pages, user icons, better channel handling, autoconf, ladder, etc. as well as working on the FAQ and user support.
Descolada (dyn1-tnt9-237.chicago.il.ameritech.net) For the hashing algorithm complete with a sample C implementation.

Razvan Jianu (email@example.com) For many useful coredumps :) Also for the /addacct command.
Qlex (firstname.lastname@example.org) For kick starting the Diablo II stuff, testing thousands quick changes, moral support, and digging up all the information.

YobGuls (firstname.lastname@example.org) Actually contributed to the DSBot code, but see next entry.
Eurijk! (email@example.com) For pointing out how the new cdkey hashing works and also how version checking is performed. This was some really ugly but important stuff!

He's also working on the Prolix bot project and has provided lots of useful bug reports and other commentary.
Fred Wittekind (firstname.lastname@example.org) For autoupdate version range support. For pointing out all the update MPQ files we didn't know about. Also for the message force-command patch.

Also for the /admin command and for the patch to fix the "operator can ban admins" bug. A big thanks for much improved kill and ban commands and the new dynamic ipban with better address matching and timeouts.
Roland Stahn (email@example.com) For all the work tracking down the versioncheck information for revision of the STAR and SEXP clients. For information about Blizzard's numbering scheme. For helpful packet information. Also for the bug reports and simple patches which probably should have been fixed a long time ago but he was the only person with enough patience to figure out what was happening. Specifically, the "all countries in one channel" feature, the empty game pass bug, the multiple game with same name bug, and the memory corruption after autoupdates. For updated version information. For diagnosing the autoupdate crash (bug in server.c handling closed sockets).
KWS (firstname.lastname@example.org) For the nice bug reports on gameinfo parsing on game join, win32 socket and file portability problems. Also for patches to update versioncheck info, implement IP storage, the patch for better eventlogs, and Makefile improvements.
