AUTHORS

Synaptic was originally developed by Alfredo K. Kojima <kojima@conectiva.com.br>. His last official release was 0.16. Michael Vogt <mvo@debian.org> took over his CVS version, that already included a nearly complete port to Gtk+. Michael completed the port and added new features. See the NEWS file for the user visible changes from that point on. Conectiva is still involved in the development of synaptic. Gustavo Niemeyer <niemeyer@conectiva.com> is doing a great deal of work.

All development is done at http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/synaptic
