Cannot retrieve contributors at this time

HardInfo was started in 2003, by L. Pereira, and has received contributions from many people over the years.

There was a time it didn't even use a version control system. The early notes and changelogs were lost. Some important contributions were made by simply submitting bug reports or comments. For these reasons, it would be difficult to gather the names of all the people that contributed to the project.

Here is an incomplete list of contributors:

  • uber-graph by Christian Hergert, and others.
  • BinReloc by Hongli Lai
