Unexpected Attribution

I’m working on adding support for Firefox Mobile to OpenAttribute this weekend. I’d hoped to get that done in time for the official launch, but, well, things have been a little busy. Firefox Mobile (Fennec) uses Electrolysis, a multi-process architecture that’s a little different from what I’m used to. Looking at the documentation and APIs, it actually looks a little closer to Chrome’s extension architecture. I was looking at tutorial videos yesterday, and downloaded Mark Finkle’s boilerplate addon to get a better look at the overlays.

As I explored the boilerplate, I opened the build script. Imagine my surprise when I read this comment at the top of the script:

# build.sh -- builds JAR and XPI files for mozilla extensions
#   by Nickolay Ponomarev <asqueella@gmail.com>
#   (original version based on Nathan Yergler's build script)
# Most recent version is at &lt;http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bash_build_script&gt;``

I have to assume this is based on the build script I developed for MozCC in 2004. I doubt anything from the original still survives (or at least I hope not), but appreciate the credit.
