Of course, no one contributes just to get into the CREDITS file. On the other
side, I know that getting credit is motivating, and there's nothing wrong with

People are different. For some it is more important than for others.
"Complain" is a heavy word, but yes people have been asking me to get added to
the CREDITS file if I forgot to add them myself. And that is absolutely
correct. This is what the CREDITS file was meant for and it is my fault not to
keep the file current.

... the only thing is that I'm more and more unhappy with it. Not because it
gives credit, but because it's often unfair (people listed may have
contributed a very different amount of work), and it's time consuming for me
to maintain.
