That's beyond unfair.

Eli has spent prodigious amounts of energy in developing Emacs in
general, and Emacs on DOS and Windows in particular, not to mention
his attention and dedication to improving the documentation. There are
at least 1313 ChangeLog entries bearing his name, and the AUTHORS file
says:

Eli Zaretskii: wrote codepage.el rxvt.el tty-colors.el
and changed msdos.c Makefile.in makefile.w32-in files.el info.el fileio.c
 startup.el mainmake.v2 config.bat menu-bar.el pc-win.el rmail.el
 simple.el msdos.h internal.el xfaces.c emacs.c frame.c dosfns.c
 faces.el frame.el and 531 other files

I'd say he's quite knowledgeable about spending energy in the
betterment of Emacs...

            Juanma
