    Hello Alan Hogan, I don't mind if you fork Contact Form 7, but DO NOT FAKE takayukister. Check the "Contributors" line in the README.txt and change it to your own name right now.

    Real takayukister

    Greetings, takayukister.

    I only meant to give you credit as the primary contributor. I will update the field immediately and apologize for the confusion.

    I have committed the change and it should show up here momentarily. Please do let me know if it is unsatisfactory. Furthermore, I encourage you to merge my changes back in to Contact Form 7 to ease everyones’ decisions and update paths.

    Hey Alan,

    I would suggest changing the name of your forked plugin to something else to avoid confusion with takayukister's CF7.

    Maybe call it "Contact Form Redux" or something else...

    A potential conflict could arise if takayukister decides to bump the version number on Contact Form...

    @r-a-y A good idea indeed, though since takayukister is aware of this plugin, I doubt he will ever rename his plugin CF8. Plus, his version number is really in the 2.0 series, not really version 7; that appears to just be the name of the plugin.
