Inspired by the CREDITS file from the Linux source tree, this file is, likewise, at least a partial list of people who have contributed to the LLVM project. The format and the next paragraph are stolen directly from that file. The list is sorted by name and formatted to allow easy grepping and beautification by scripts. The fields are: name (N), email (E), web-address (W), PGP key ID and fingerprint (P), description (D), and snail-mail address (S).
