VERSION

version 0.2.1

SYNOPSIS

In dist.ini:

    " any plugin populating x_contributors in the META files
    [ContributorsFromGit]

    [ContributorsFile]
    filename = CONTRIBUTORS

DESCRIPTION

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ContributorsFile populates a CONTRIBUTORS file with all the contributors of the project as found by Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ContributorsFromGit (or any other plugin populating the x_contributors in the META files).

The generated file will look like this:

    # FOO-BAR CONTRIBUTORS #

    This is the (likely incomplete) list of people who have helped
    make this distribution what it is, either via code contributions, 
    patches, bug reports, help with troubleshooting, etc. A huge
    thank to all of them.

        * Albert Zoot <zoo@foo.com>
        * Bertrand Maxwell <maxwell@bar.com>

Note that if no contributors beside the actual author(s) are found, the file will not be created.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

filename

The name of the contributor file that is created. Defaults to CONTRIBUTORS.

TRICKS

Refer to David Golden's blog entry at http://www.dagolden.com/index.php/1921/how-im-using-distzilla-to-give-credit-to-contributors/ to get introduced to the Dist::Zilla contributor modules.

Git's .mailmap file is useful to deal with contributors with several email addresses: https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-shortlog.html.

To give credit to bug reporters and other persons who don't commit code directly, you can use empty git commits:

    git commit --allow-empty --author="David Golden <dagolden@cpan.org>" -m "..."
