Hi klaus-jürgen, all

They get their own credit points as you can see on the credit list. It

Well, then that list needs to be updated more frequently so that people
actually see their name on it after a new release (I find it a little
absurd that the LibreOffice wiki contributors' credits are under developers
who never contributed to LO... Anyone who did a single commit (even a
thousand) back in 2000 is not an LO contributor. IMO that section should be
removed altogether.

E.g. on German ml there are many discussions about potential bugs. Some

Can't the German ML community "elect" someone who has a reasonable English
to report the findings in Bugzilla? He/she could register as "German ML
users" and at least there would be a group credit. It seems to me like a
waste of good resources if that testing and discussion stays in the ML
unreported because of a language barrier...
