correct reference for the Gimp ?

Sorry for the silly question, but... I'm using the Gimp quite heavily in my Ph. D. thesis redaction. I wish to reference it in the bibliography, as it should be. What is the correct/proper way of doing that ? Thanks in advance.

I would suggest you check with your staff adviser to find out what they want to see. A good start would be to refer to the program as "GIMP". :-) A link to GIMP's website would be a good idea along with the number of the version of GIMP you are using.

Depends on your subject area - e.g. MLA has guidelines to referring to Web sites in references, and you tend to see something like,

You'd have an awfully long reference if you named all the contributors. I'd suggest something like, "All who contributed towards the GIMP libre software image editing program."

Help->about lists them, and the source has an AUTHORS file that may or may not be included (it's in /usr/share/doc/gimp/AUTHORS here, on Linux).

I do not know how complete it is, as probably thousands of people have submitted small patches and are not mentioned.

If the point of the thesis isn't to extract this data from the source repository itself, then I'd rely on e.g. https://www.ohloh.net/p/gimp

Especially https://www.ohloh.net/p/gimp/contributors
