#20825 is "The AUTHORS file needs updating before the next
release," but I am not sure what changes should be made. What do
I suggest that we apply this patch:
RCS file: /sources/pspp/pspp/AUTHORS,v
retrieving revision 1.7

We also thank past contributors:
#20824 is "Update the text in the About dialog before the next
release," but the text in the About dialog is partially generated
from the AUTHORS file, so fixing #20825 could possibly also fix
this. I do not know whether other changes are needed.
As we've now done some fairly extensive testing, I think that we
should change the text "This is pre-alpha software. Use at your own
risk." to something more optimistic.
