Special thanks go to jpscaletti for originally creating
Copier. This project would not be a thing without him.
Many thanks to pykong who took over maintainership on the project, promoted it, and laid out the bases of what the project is today.
Big thanks also go to Yajo for his relentless zest for
Copier even further.
Thanks a lot, pawamoy for polishing very important rough edges and improving the documentation and UX a lot.
