Thanks. The Codex says I need to have a plugin or theme in the repository to get onto the authors list - is that strictly enforced?
I write plugins, but all for private clients.
Sorry to go off topic, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who might benefit from access to that list, even if it was read-only for the obvious reasons.

> - jQuery 1.6.0 and newer introduces another method: .prop() that replaces many .attr() calls. This was (partially) reverted in jQuery 1.6.1 but we still found a place were we needed to switch from .attr() to .prop() in order for the script to work properly. Also using .prop() is a lot faster.
> Please note that jQuery 1.6.1 came out the day after WordPress 3.2-beta was released so it's not included in the downloadable package. To test with jQuery 1.6.1 you will need to update your 3.2-beta installation to trunk.
> 4. WordPress 3.2 has new minimal requirements: PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0.15. Most of the PHP 4 compat code was removed except for a few class constructors since many plugins seem to call them directly. If your plugin uses any of the WordPress PHP classes, please test that it calls them properly.
