Description of problem:
The "Written by" tab in the evolutions credits window is empty. The "Documented by" tab seems to be fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Evolution
2. Click "Help" in the main menu and select "About Evolution..."
3. Click the "Credits" button and go to the "Written by" tab.
Actual Results: It is empty.
Expected Results: It should have listed the names of the Evolution hackers.
This also happened on my Gentoo box about two months ago (Gentoo bug #98491), and Leonardo mentioned that the author list needed a patch to fix an invalid character in it.
Not to be rude or anything, but it's been more than a month and still no fix for
this? Not even status from a dev? :(
(Granted, it's nothing major at all..)
Thanks for the bug report (and the reminder)
I've been treating this as a low priority issue, as it seems to work OK in the
latest development builds (2.4.*), and I have plenty of other bugs that I'm
working on, alas.
If you provide me with a patch, I'll put out an update for FC4, but otherwise
I'm not planning to spend time on this. Thanks for your understanding (and if
you can supply a patch, that'd be great - is it actually fixed in Gentoo: I
couldn't see the patch in that bugzilla entry)
According to the Gentoo changelog, the patch was applied from upstream in
their 2.2.3-r1 release, so I can only presume it's been fixed in the the 2.4
Evolution. I'll try it out on my Rawhide install when I get home and let you
know how it goes.
Erm. I just noticed that the patch was there too.
Thanks! I've pushed out a test update for FC4 with that patch:
Please can you test that update and confirm that it fixes things.
Seems to be just fine now. Thanks a lot, Dave. :)

2.2.3-4 was pushed out to FC4 updates some time ago which fixed this. I'm
closing this bug, then. Thanks!
