As I have said earlier, you are excellent in catching these embarrassing
mistakes....this is not peter fault, but mine, I have simple forgotten the
difference, and just checked all files.

I would prefer a contributors file at top level. I am strongly against
having contributions in the single files.

Please, if you have the cycles please go ahead and change all files. Today
the only contributor is UX Productivity Ptl Ltd, and I think we should list
this a "original grant".

thanks in advance, that is a no fun job.
