-I like programs which use Text User Interfaces, because they are simple, fast,
-portable and efficient, so I thought about working on coding a simple calendar
-using such an interface. Moreover, I wanted to go on learning the `C`
-language, which I only used for a while during my undergraduate studies. So I
-thought that would be the good project to start in order to get organized and
-to learn about a few `C` things !
-Unfortunately, I finished my Ph.D. before finishing `calcurse`, but anyway, I
-still wanted to work on it, hoping it would be helpful to other people. So
-here it is...
-But why _calcurse_ anyway ? Well, it is simply the concatenation of _CALendar_
-and _nCURSEs_, the name of the library used to build the user interface.
+Frederic started thinking about this project when he was finishing his Ph.D. in
+Astrophysics as it started to be a little hard to organize himself and he
+really needed a good tool for managing his appointments and todo list.
+Unfortunately, he finished his Ph.D. before finishing `calcurse` but he

+In mid-2010, Lukas took over development of `calcurse` and is now the main
+contributor and reviewer of patches.
+But why `calcurse` anyway? Well, it is simply the concatenation of *cal*endar
