Hi everyone,

First I'd like to point out that I'll be visiting my parents during the next 
few days (my train leaves in two hours ...). So it's pretty likely that I 
won't be present on IRC as often as I've been during the last few days.

Yes, that certainly makes sense. However I was thinking how we can encourage 
developers of other applications to keep the full credits list in their about 
dialog. Right now the Marble dialog is in a pretty bad shape - I'd like to 
have a much nicer dialog that has a seperate tab for crediting data sources 
and research and that features an HTML/CSS layout.
Also there are a lot of people from the last few weeks missing as I postponed 
the whole AboutDialog issue in general. 
Especially for the release which will exclusively highlight the GSoC results 
(probably "0.5") I'd also like to credit the students' work in the about 
dialog appropriately.
