We definitely need a new b2 web site that is geared toward treating it as a
true product. As for core.. It's varied over the years. Dave A and myself
where the core for v1. For v2 it's been mostly Vladimir, recently also
Steven. And I've done general minor stuff through v2 also. But the
beginning of v2 Dave A also did some work.
