** FAQ

**** Who are these people? Most of the people on this list are either heavy contributors to [[https://melpa.org/#/][MELPA]] or people who get involved in the community beyond having only an .emacs.d dir. If you spend time checking out MELPA packages, [[https://www.reddit.com/r/emacs/][/r/emacs]] or [[https://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions][Emacs StackExchage]] you would probably know most of them.

**** How do you get yourself on this list? First you should ask yourself why would you want to get on this list? ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DPzRg--jhO8g][I'm kiddin'...]]) Most of the times a pull request would suffice. Keep in mind though that I won't accept self submission if the /config/ is not vetted by the other people or is not original enough. One can also contribute by adding suggestions to [[https://github.com/caisah/emacs.dz/issues/34][this thread]].

**** Can you ask your friend to list you? Why not? Though if it's a real friend he would probably also state what makes your /config/ special. :wink:

**** How did this list come about in the first place? This list was inspired by [[https://github.com/emacs-tw/awesome-emacs][awesome-emacs]] and started as a simple list of a few popular /configs/ but lately is getting a lot of attention. :P
