When looking through the CG searching for info on contributing I was
directed to the "Meisters" page to get in touch with them.

On the page itself however I only find four first names without any
contact information.

Fortunately I could figure out whom to contact, but of course you can't
expect someone willing to contribute not to stop here and look for
something different.

I would say that on that page I would like to see the full names of the
Meisters as well as their email addresses in order to 'get in touch'
with the as I was suggested to.

Attached patch would do that.

Feel free to include it


I presume the reason emails weren't there was because of the extra spam they could generate.

That's what I thought first too.
But Documentation/included/authors.itexi _does_ show email addresses (even undisguised ones).

This should be clarified:

- Should email addresses be exposed on lilypond.org?
- if yes, undisguised or in which form?
- if there should be _no_ email addresses the documentation in the CG should be adapted. Maybe one could be asked to write to the mailing list in order to get contacted back? Although this isn't exactly encouraging ...

Would somebody please create a tracker about this?

The current behaviour is not acceptable. We can't direct potential contributors to the Meisters page and leave them there without any contact information.

Another idea to protect the privacy of the meisters would be to create 'anonymous' email accounts like address@hidden that forward to a personal mailbox.

If there is an agreement on what we want to have I can prepare a patch.
