I haven't entered anyone into my credits yet, but I have all the
patches/snippets that have been put in and tinkered with in their own
directory so that when I go to get the mud up and running I can just put
them in (or hunt down the people that have no name in the file);

As to this thread a piece of code being copyrighted isn't easily proved.
All someone has to really do is change the time/date stamp and add some
cosmetic changes to make it look like they coded it first.

I think that the person should be given credit for something they
probably slaved over and tore their hair out getting to work.
