Yeah, by the time I'd finished testing I realised I had quite a long post that really didn't say very much. But thank you for making the couple of changes.

Sounds good, it would probably only need two or three calls to give the appearance of randomness, which is all that's required.

Sounds good. It would be sensible to use the github bug tracker because bugs reported here can easily be forgotten, but directing people here in the first instance is likely to lead to more visibility and discussion.

The pattern so far seems to be to mention people by name in about.txt (e.g. Thomas Harte gets a mention under the PUTBASIC command and some people get a mention in the changelog). We could stick an "acknowledgements" section in about.txt and bung it all in there.

beebem also notes contributors for each release in the changelog. That seems to work pretty well.
