Hi all,

I just wanted to share a milestone in the CHIRP project with the community.
Ten years ago today, on July 3rd 2008, I made the first commit to the
repository which started the chirp project:

https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/repository/revisions/31cfb1a376fb

It was just a rough bit of code that could talk to an Icom IC-92AD and I was
apparently thinking of calling it "repidr". I do not recall what that was
supposed to stand for, but by July 16th I had renamed it to CHIRP:

https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/repository/revisions/646c121a847b

By July 19th, I was ready to make something available, which was just able
to read and write CSV files, and talk to Icom IC-9x radios and the ID-800H.
This was the first version 0.1.1:

https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/repository/revisions/1428729c41b7

I still remember the large stack of paper on the corner of my desk where I
had written out tons of hex, all in pencil, erased and re-written many
times, trying to decode the first few radio memories and looking for
patterns to make it easier.

The project has come a long way since then, largely due to the help and
involvement of other volunteers and users. While the first release supported
two radio models, the latest one supports 228 distinct models, with more if
you count the many clones that exist. The users mailing list has a fairly
amazing 2892 people subscribed, from all over the world, representing a tiny
fraction of the total user base.

So, I just want to thank all the people who have made CHIRP possible and
successful. Especially contributors of code, bug reports, and test reports,
but also people who have spent hours on this list helping others and being
the support system that allows volunteer developers to focus on what they do
best. Thanks to anyone who has ever sent a donation, as well as the
commercial outfits who have contributed radios and other help. There are too
many to name, but BaofengTech, BlueMax49ers, and Jetstream are a few that
come to mind as having a substantial impact.

At the end of this email is a very rough list of all the code contributors
to the project, extracted from the repository with minimal attempts to
squash some duplicates. These are the rock stars that have gotten us to
where we are today, so please join me in thanking them for spending their
nights and weekends making this project the success that it is today!
