Some of the mentioned contributions might not be part of the current glibc, still we would like to mention those that contributed.

Something like that is certainly fine. I guess I'd phrase it like this:

This appreciation persists even when some particular work is no longer
of @theglibc{}.  Some of the contributions listed here have been removed
entirely in the years since the work was done.  While the code will always
continue to change and no part of it lasts forever, the gratitude toward
all contributors, past and present, is eternal.

I like it. I've added it.

I'm still struggling how to mark those removed contributions - or whether
the above paragraph is enough.

Brendan Kehoe for contributing the port to the MIPS DECStation running Ultrix 4 (@code{mips-dec-ultrix4}) and the port to the DEC Alpha running OSF/1 (@code{alpha-dec-osf1}).

We could add behind the port something like "(removed in the meantime)" or
"(not anymore part of @theglibc)".

Any good ideas?

Add Roland's paragraph, which I really like and find wonderfully elegant.

So do I - and did already.

There is no need to add "(not anymore part of ..."

Contributions should get added to this list, and never removed.

I just send v3 of the document. If we don't mark contributions as removed, then I've done what I wanted to do for now and now need help on my English from native speakers.

But we can also commit it first - what works best?
