Anyone can notify about bugs in WordPress using Trac, where also anyone can submit patches to fix them. When someone actually submits a patch which is later on approved by head developers and included in WordPress' core, the changelog contains a tiny credit to them: "props Joti" for example (props meaning something like thanks, yeepee, kudos, or respect).
Do you know the people, or more likely some of the people, who helped in making your blogware and beloved WordPress more reliable, more usable, more bloggable? I thought it would be nice giving some props to these fine WordPress bug fixers, so I went for some digging and made up the WordPress Bug Fixers Heat Map (aka Cloud)
Method: fetch, parse, cloudify.
Disclaimer: Stats are often meaningless and deceiving. The above cloud is in no way representative of anything, and of submitters' quality above all. Your name may or may not appear. My warm thank you to all of the bug submitters.
