Many thanks have to go to Michael Neuling, who wrote the first
releasable cut of the IP chains code while working for me. Public
apologies for nixing his result-caching idea, which Alan Cox later
proposed and I have finally begun implementing, having seen the error
of my ways.
Thanks to Alan Cox for his 24-hour EMail tech support, and
Thanks to all the authors of the ipfw and ipfwadm code, especially Jos
Vos. Standing on the shoulders of giants and all that... This
applies to Linus Torvalds and all the kernel and userspace hackers as
Thanks to the diligent beta testers and bughunters, especially Jordan
Mendelson, Shaw Carruthers, Kevin Moule, Dr. Liviu Daia, Helmut Adams,
Franck Sicard, Kevin Littlejohn, Matt Kemner, John D. Hardin, Alexey
Kuznetsov, Leos Bitto, Jim Kunzman, Gerard Gerritsen, Serge Sivkov,
Andrew Burgess, Steve Schmidtke, Richard Offer, Bernhard Weisshuhn,
Larry Auton, Ambrose Li, Pavel Krauz, Steve Chadsey, Francesco
Potorti`, Alain Knaff, Casper Boden-Cummins and Henry Hollenberg.
People who do translations should put themselves at the top
of the Thanks page, like so: `Special thanks to XXX, for translating
everything exactly from my English.'. Then tell me about your
translation so I can include it here.
