True, but:

a) A complete rewrite without reference to the original is not a rework
(not that I begrudge a credit even in that case, however it is not
strictly correct, and requiring a patcher to find and credit all
attempts at fixing a problem is really asking a bit much).

b) You've added Bill for the trailing .s but AFAICR he didn't ever
submit a patch for it, only Alexei did (and, even though I didn't
actually use Alexei's code, I still credited him).

c) You've added Bill for the "all dot directories" problem, but I
thought it was Manoj that contributed the code I didn't use?

Cheers,

Ben.
