Description

On the credits.php page, Matt is listed as the Cofounder, Project Lead, however Cofounder is missing a hyphen. I'll create a patch which adds the hyphen back in.

As excited as I am about bikesheds, both "Cofounder" and "Co-founder" are correct ("Co-Founder" generally isn't, but I'd probably let it slide as a title).

Given that this would also require a w.org API change, I don't think it's necessary.

(Side note, the dictionary reference you linked to has "cofounder" as the primary spelling, and "co-founder" as the alternative spelling. 😉)

Oh, I didn't notice that. I searched cofounder into a Google search and returned co-founder in what seemed like an auto-corrected search phrase so I quickly grabbed the dictionary link. Never mind, I guess Matt will never be hyphenated. 😢
