It looks like the 'contributor' data (Paul Bramley) from didn't get added in to this commit...


adam3smith replied Nov 21, 2014

not sure why that matters to you, but FWIW, I didn't add Paul as a contributor because I didn't use his code for the style but implemented the changes he suggested for the style in a different way - as you can easily see in the diff. If he really does want to be on there, I can add him, but don't really see why?


jesusbagpuss replied Nov 21, 2014

The reason I thought it might be appropriate is that we (University of Leeds) have no official involvement with this style. It's useful to know that people are using it, and maintaining it. It's even more useful to know that someone who has an affiliation with the University is using it, but this fact isn't easy to trace currently!

I don't mind either way - the reason I took a look at this is that someone that is involved with maintaining our guidelines on citation styles thinks that it's still not quite right (I'm trying to get more details as to what exactly. As we don't use CSL officially in anything, this is outside of their core remit)!

I am hoping that we might start to adopt CSL in the future - in which case we will take some ownership!

Apologies if that's a bit rambling!

OK, makes sense. Feel free to be in touch both with reports of CSL errors or if you'd like advice on adopting one or multiple CSL-using products (which is really pretty much everything but Endnote, Sente, and Refworks by now).
We're keeping the list of contributors mainly to be able to track down people for questions (and for the BY requirement) and this didn't seem like a case where we'd need it. Adding and maintaining university specific styles isn't a high priority for us, so we fix them only when people very specifically ask for that and we only add new ones where we actually get user submissions or are commissioned to write them. So the fact that this exists and we get error reports and comments means it's definitely in use.
