It's good that we finally credit him.

I am wondering about why he is listed under the list of developers in the engine team though. I can't seem to find any commit of him under the nickname there nor under his real name, so I am not sure whether he actually was part of the ScummVM team in the past. If he was that's of course the right thing to do. In case he was not I am wondering why for example the guy who contributed the initial gob engine is not listed in the gob team, but DanielFox is listed in the engine team now.

This was done in a way he personally requested. And he was technically part of the team when the engine was developed off-trunk, being mainly a consultant. He used to have svn access but never committed after the merge.

In contrast to him with Dubrov there never ever was a single e-mail exchange. The engine was donated as is through a french guy.
