Some contributors are currently credited here:

It would be easy to add your name there.
Do you want the credit to include an e-mail address, if so, which?

Do you want to use Joe or Joseph?

Your name currently appears in several java source files in the @author tag.
The ASF now deprecates the use of indivual @author tags, because they
are impossible to maintain accurately and the ASF is about community
rather than individuals.

So we would like to remove the tags from the main source files and put
them in the website instead.
Would that be OK with you?

Were you involved with BSF 3.x (JSR-223) as well as BSF 2.x?
