Can anybody remember the identity of the original author of GNU find?
I'm not talking about "locate", I'm talking about "find".  The AUTHORS
file from findutils (which I have updated in CVS) says :-

> AUTHORS of findutils
> I do not know the name of the original author of the findutils package.
> Here are the names of some authors culled from ChangeLog and
> miscellaneous other files.
> The locate program and its helper programs are derived (heavily
> modified) from James Woods' public domain fast-find code, which is
> also distributed with the 4.3BSD find.
> Eric B. Decker
> David J. MacKenzie
> Jim Meyering
> Tim Wood
> Kevin Dalley <address@hidden>
> Paul Eggert <address@hidden>
> James Youngman <address@hidden>
> The current maintainer of the findutils package is James Youngman.
> Questions about findutils should be addressed to the mailing list,
> <address@hidden> which, contrary to the impression given by its
> name, is used for general discussion of the findutils package.
