+This is a partial history of this shell gleened from old change logs and
+readmes (most of which are still in the misc directory) and the source
+code. Hopefully it is correct and no contributors have been left out
+(file a bug report if you spot a problem :-)).
+
+Release history:
+ * Eric Gisin (egisin@math.uwaterloo.ca), created pdksh, using
+ Charles Forsyth's public domain V7 shell as a base; also used parts
+ of the BRL shell (written by Doug A Gwyn, Doug Kingston, Ron Natalie,
+ Arnold Robbins, Lou Salkind, and others?, circa '87; the parts used in
+ pdksh included getopts, test builtin, ulimit, tty setting/getting, emacs
+ editing, and job control; the test builtin was based on code by Erik
+ Baalbergen).
