Dear Sage developers (current and past):

The SageMath developer map (https://www.sagemath.org/development-map.html) needs your updated information.

In particular, motivated by the proposed migration from Trac to GitHub Issues/PRs (https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/30363), we will need your GitHub account name by September 26.
(If you don't have a GitHub account yet, now is a great time to open one.)

The source code of the Sage website is maintained in the GitHub repository https://github.com/sagemath/website; to add yourself or to update your information shown in the development map, edit the file https://github.com/sagemath/website/blob/master/conf/contributors.xml and send a pull request (PR). 
- For your GitHub user name, use the "github" attribute.
- For your (legacy) Trac user name, use the "trac" attribute. If you already use a GitHub login for Trac, i.e., your Trac user name starts with "gh-", there is no need to add the "trac" attribute.
- If you have a Gitlab.com account, you can also add that if you want, using the "gitlab" attribute.

You can do all of this editing directly on GitHub by clicking the "Edit" button; or, if you prefer, you can fork the repository, clone it to your computer, edit it there, commit the change, push it to your fork, and send a PR.

We would also like to consolidate the Sage developer map information with the information currently at https://trac.sagemath.org/#AccountNamesMappedtoRealNames; if your name appears on this Trac page, please help us by doing the following:
- review the information there, move it to the contributors.xml file, and then delete it from the Trac page.

Done (and hopefully correctly:-)

It appears my info was all correct already. I removed my info from the
trac landing page.

I notice there is some confusion in what the label "work" means. Some
people put their position rather than their institution. I don't think
that's a big deal but if that's you :) you can fix that too.

From the top of contributors.xml

contributor
+ name
- location = something which returns the correct location when entered
in maps.google.com
- work = university, institute, ...

Sometimes "location" and "work" are the same and that's OK.
