3	The following people have contributed to this code (in alphabetical
4	order by last name).  I'm sure this list should be longer, its
5	difficult to maintain, add yourself with a patch if desired.

28	Special thanks to:
29	
30	  Inaky Perez Gonzalez <inaky@peloncho.fis.ucm.es> for starting the
31	  Linux USB driver effort and writing much of the larger uusbd driver.
32	  Much has been learned from that effort.
33	
34	  The NetBSD & FreeBSD USB developers.  For being on the Linux USB list
35	  and offering suggestions and sharing implementation experiences.
36	
37	Additional thanks to the following companies and people for donations
38	of hardware, support, time and development (this is from the original
39	THANKS file in Inaky's driver):
40	
41	        The following corporations have helped us in the development
42	        of Linux USB / UUSBD:
43	
44		- 3Com GmbH for donating a ISDN Pro TA and supporting me
45		  in technical questions and with test equipment. I'd never 
46		  expect such a great help.
47	
48	        - USAR Systems provided us with one of their excellent USB
49	          Evaluation Kits. It allows us to test the Linux-USB driver
50	          for compliance with the latest USB specification. USAR
51	          Systems recognized the importance of an up-to-date open
52	          Operating System and supports this project with
53	          Hardware. Thanks!.
54	
55	        - Thanks to Intel Corporation for their precious help.
56	
57	        - We teamed up with Cherry to make Linux the first OS with
58	          built-in USB support. Cherry is one of the biggest keyboard
59	          makers in the world.
60	
61	        - CMD Technology, Inc. sponsored us kindly donating a CSA-6700
62	          PCI-to-USB Controller Board to test the OHCI implementation.
63	
64	        - Due to their support to us, Keytronic can be sure that they
65	          will sell keyboards to some of the 3 million (at least)
66	          Linux users.
67	
68	        - Many thanks to ing büro h doran [http://www.ibhdoran.com]!
69	          It was almost impossible to get a PC backplate USB connector
70	          for the motherboard here at Europe (mine, home-made, was
71	          quite lousy :). Now I know where to acquire nice USB stuff!
72	
73	        - Genius Germany donated a USB mouse to test the mouse boot
74	          protocol. They've also donated a F-23 digital joystick and a
75	          NetMouse Pro. Thanks! 
76	
77	        - AVM GmbH Berlin is supporting the development of the Linux
78	          USB driver for the AVM ISDN Controller B1 USB. AVM is a
79	          leading manufacturer for active and passive ISDN Controllers
80	          and CAPI 2.0-based software. The active design of the AVM B1
81	          is open for all OS platforms, including Linux.
82	
83	        - Thanks to Y-E Data, Inc. for donating their FlashBuster-U
84	          USB Floppy Disk Drive, so we could test the bulk transfer
85	          code.
86	
87	        - Many thanks to Logitech for contributing a three axis USB
88	          mouse. 
89	
90	          Logitech designs, manufactures and markets
91	          Human Interface Devices, having a long history and
92	          experience in making devices such as keyboards, mice,
93	          trackballs, cameras, loudspeakers and control devices for
94	          gaming and professional use.
95	
96	          Being a recognized vendor and seller for all these devices,
97	          they have donated USB mice, a joystick and a scanner, as a
98	          way to acknowledge the importance of Linux and to allow
99	          Logitech customers to enjoy support in their favorite
100	          operating systems and all Linux users to use Logitech and
101	          other USB hardware.
102	
103	          Logitech is official sponsor of the Linux Conference on
104	          Feb. 11th 1999 in Vienna, where we'll will present the
105	          current state of the Linux USB effort.
