This is a list of contributors who left this project. We hope that this list remains short and that some missing contributors come back.

If you think that a community member will throw in the towel, being nice and encouraging dispute resolution in a civil manner could help so that you don't have to add his or her name to this list.

The purpose of this list is to provide a reminder to us of those valuable contributors who have left. Please only add user when you are certain that they left. If a user returns, welcome him back and take his name off this list.
