LEAP: GNU/Linux-Equipped Astronauts Project: Who's Who

This is the list of who's doing what, as far as I know. It's far from complete; this is just the names of people who have introduced themselves, more or less.

In The Future this list will be better-organized, and will indicate credit where credit is due. I was beginning to put names of more active members closer to the top, but now it's in alphabetical order. Do you have an opinion on how best to recognize contributions, here?
