This is the list of all of the direct contributor's that we are aware of. The definition of a direct contributor is one who wrote code for XMB either in the base software or an official hack or one performed active service in terms of repairs to existing boards, themes creation and/or updating, installation of boards / hacks / themes directly for other users of XMB software.

There is no intention of leaving off this list any person who was ever an active contributor. We have poured through all of the old documentation we could find and this is the most accurte list that we were able to put together.

Please contact us on the forums if you were or are a contributor that is not on this list.
