This page aims to list the community members who are currently contributing any type of work to the Mozilla Thunderbird project on a regular basis.
The form (e.g. list/table) and order or appearance is under consideration and new people/tasks are still added. The page is currently maintained by aceman.
(I am thinking about linking to the mozillians.org profile of each contributor. I'd like all contributors listed here who have a Mozillians profile to review the data there and set up the fields which are OK to be displayed for public view.)
