The DSpace application would not exist without the hard work and support of the community. Thank you to the many developers who have worked very hard to deliver all the new features and improvements. Also thanks to the users who provided input and feedback on the development, as well those who participated in the testathons.
We especially would like to thank the 3.0 Release Team: Sands Fish (Release Coordinator) from MIT, Hardy Pottinger from University of Missouri, Robin Taylor from EDINA/University of Edinburgh, and Ivan MasFinally, we would like to thank Tim Donohue of DuraSpace for ensuring that DSpace 3.0 went off without a hitch.
A detailed listing of all known people/institutions who contributed directly to DSpace 3.0 is available in the Preface of the DSpace Documentation. (If you contributed and were accidentally not listed, please let us know so that we can correct it!)
For DSpace 3.0, we had a total of 41 individuals contribute code, bug reports, and bug fixes. Of those 41 individuals, a surprising 23 of them were brand new contributors! A big thanks goes out to everyone who participated for the first time. We hope you'll continue to be a valuable addition to the DSpace community for the next release and beyond!
