==Overall guidance==
[http://dougiamas.com/ Martin Dougiamas] is the founder and manager for the whole Moodle project. Since 2005 there is a [http://moodle.com/hq/ team of people] employed over at [http://moodle.com/ Moodle HQ] in Perth, Australia helping him keep on top of things (or at least within sight of the top!).
The Moodle software package is [[License|Copyright © 1999 onwards, Martin Dougiamas under the GNU GPL]].
It can be cited as follows:
  Moodle, version 1.9 (2007) http://moodle.org (accessed 2007)
==Key Moodle Roles==
* Lead Developer - [[User:Martin Dougiamas|Martin Dougiamas]]
* Knight in Shining Armor - [[User:Eloy Lafuente (stronk7)|Eloy Lafuente (stronk7)]]
* Translation Coordinator - [[User:koen roggemans|Koen Roggemans]]
* Security Officer - Petr Škoda (skodak)
* Community Manager - [[User:Helen Foster|Helen Foster]]
* Themes Manager - [[User:UrsHunkler|Urs Hunkler]]
* Contrib Coordinator - [[User:Anthony Borrow|Anthony Borrow]]
==Main developers==
Endless thanks from all of us goes to those who have contributed substantial and ongoing amounts of time to writing Moodle code and helping it grow. These are people who "get" what developing Moodle is all about and without whom Moodle would be a far lesser thing:
'''Eloy Lafuente (stronk7), Ray Kingdon, Williams Castillo, Petri Asikainen, Henrik Kaipe, Zbigniew Fiedorowicz, Gustav Delius, Thomas Robb, Janne Mikkonen, Jon Papaioannou (pj), Scott Elliott, Shane Elliott, Roberto Pinna (Bobo), Mike Churchward, Petr Škoda (skodak), Penny Leach, Martin Langhoff, Urs Hunkler, Michael Penney, Yu Zhang, Helen Foster, Tim Hunt, Sam Marshall, Jamie Pratt, Nicolas Connault'''
One of Moodle's strengths is the number of translations it has. Each translation takes many hours of work, as there are over 1000 phrases to translate (plus hundreds of help files!) Many of the languages have more than one contributor, sometimes working together and sometimes working serially.
'''[[Translation credits]]''' lists all these wonderful people.
The Translation Coordinator is Koen Roggemans ''translation AT moodle DOT org''.
Themes give Moodle sites colour and life. '''[[Theme credits]]''' lists all the themes included in the core Moodle download, along with their authors.
==Supporting Organisations==
* '''Open University, UK''' - contributed to Roles, accessibility in 1.8, Quiz (ongoing) and many smaller things.
* '''Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), Italy (especially Daniele Cordella)''' - contributed to accessibility compliance to W3C guidelines and Italian law.
* '''Microsoft, US''' - contributed to development of [[Development:XMLDB Documentation|XMLDB]].

* '''Open Polytechnic, NZ (esp Richard Wyles)''' - for contributions to Moodle Network, Stats, PostgreSQL support, and many other things
(this list is not complete yet)
==Other contributors and developers==
Many other people have contributed (and are still contributing) with constructive discussions, support, testing and various chunks of code and documentation - see '''[[Community credits]]'''.
