The "Credits" document in the "About" dialog could use some updating. It fails to mention Saimadhav Heblikar's important work during GSoC 2014 as well as Terry J. Reedy's tireless work over the past few years which has helped keep IDLE in working order and the codebase in reasonable shape given its age.

I have thought about everything from deleting the file to a detailed update.  If we keep it, anything would be an improvement. Perhap something in the middle, starting in 2013.  I just decided I don't need be be responsible for anything earlier, even this I actually started in Fall 2010.

2013 Roger Serwy (and perhaps GSOC Phil Webster -- I need to look more at News log.)
2014 Saimadhav Heblikar
2015 Mark Roseman
2017 Louie Lu, Cheryl Sabella, Serhiy Storchaka, the latter two to date.
201?, 2019 Tal Einat

Can you make a suggested addition?

Looks pretty good to me. I've been working on IDLE since... 2003/2004, beginning with a private fork of IDLE-fork. I began actually contributing to the main CPython version of IDLE in 2005.
