We should have a credits page linked in the footer, similar to the 'Your Rights' screen added in #17383.

It should pull from an API, which would receive the WP version and the locale. We'll then return the core team, recent top contributors, and the list of props for that version. The locale can be used for translations or for showing the translators. The initial API endpoint is devoid of the props list, but those will follow in a follow-up commit.

Props especially to matt, jane, markjaquith on the concept and text.

The credits screen could contain the list active of plugins and the theme and credit the authors of those.

Can we put specific content into the help tab for this screen, such as:

The links next to each picture lead to that person's profile in the community directory. You can register your own profile at to start contributing. WordPress always needs more people to report bugs, patch bugs, test betas, translate strings, write documentation, build WordCamps, and add questions, answers, and suggestions to the Support Forums.

Add core contributors to credits page, first pass. see #17384.

Show display names from profiles on the credits page. see #17384.

#7 @nacin

The API now returns display names from the profiles. In the event you wish to update your profile, note that the data is cached for 12 hours.

The props list on gets updated manually. We can probably update it each beta/RC and freeze at final.

Those checking this out on beta 1: core won't know how to handle the API response data, as the format has changed. (Shouldn't be any more backwards incompatible changes at this point.) Update to trunk or the latest nightly (well, tomorrow's nightly) for the good stuff.

Just re-opening since there's a patch here.

The $counter use is probably not needed (As the $member_Slug should be unique; I believe there was a bug in the API causing someone to be there twice). The Alt for the gravatars seems like redundant data to me.. In the Admin bar we set it to an empty string however, so perhaps that should be done here too?
