I am updating (forking) a WP plugin over on Github - with some functionality on the plugins roadmap - so I know this feature is desired by the developer and will probably be included in their next update through WP plugins.
When updating the plugin with my additions, do I also update the readme.txt file etc and add my username as a contributor (I guess this should be the case)? Or should I contact them and ask to be put on?
It is my expectation that if I had contributed then I would be credited here but not sure on the right approach!
Thanks for any advice ;)
