Who are these people?

Most of the people on this list are either heavy contributors to MELPA or people who get involved in the community beyond having only an .emacs.d dir. If you spend time checking out MELPA packages, /r/emacs or Emacs StackExchage you would probably know most of them.

How do you get yourself on this list?

First you should ask yourself why would you want to get on this list? (I’m kiddin’…) Most of the times a pull request would suffice. Keep in mind though that I won’t accept self submission if the config is not vetted by the other people or is not original enough. One can also contribute by adding suggestions to this thread.

Can you ask your friend to list you?

Why not? Though if it’s a real friend he would probably also state what makes your config special. 😉

How did this list come about in the first place?

This list was inspired by awesome-emacs and started as a simple list of a few popular configs but lately is getting a lot of attention. :P
