I think we should add the contributor's name as a title so it will be displayed on hover.

Hi there, thanks for the ticket and the patch!

As previously noted in comment:25:ticket:42888, WordPress has been progressively removing title attributes from its codebase in the last years. It's important to not introduce new title attributes, as they serve no useful purpose, are usually redundant, available only to mouse users, and thus they are not accessible. See #24766 for more context.

Hi there!

If we consider title attribute then we have to use esc_html( $person_data[0] ) instead of esc_attr( $person_data[0] ) because we already use it in credits.php#L156

As mentioned earlier, WordPress has been removing title attributes due to accessibility concerns.

In this case, I think it is redundant as the name of the person is displayed inline. Adding titles risks screen reader users (depending the software used) hearing "Matt Mullenweg Matt Mullenweg" and so on for each of the contributors.

As WP has been removing title attributes by design, I'm going to close this ticket off.
