As part of the release notes for each new version, I compile a list of the people who have contributed code or reviewed changes that go into the release. As you might expect, many of the familiar names from the CiviCRM partners list are there.
However, a sizable number of nonprofits, big and small, write and edit significant amounts of code, adding features and resolving bugs. Now that CiviCRM 5.0 has been released, I wanted to take the time to thank all of the nonprofit organizations who have contributed code to the 4.7 series:
This is besides all of the work that nonprofit staff and volunteers do to test and document CiviCRM. Users of CiviCRM really do drive the project, and all of us who work with the software owe your a round of thanks for the valuable time and knowledge you contribute.
