    Can't seem to find the script bot author thingo for the manifest. Not sure if you've added it yet but just thought i'd mention it cause the script bot selector has an author column :)

    Derp. Just read the changelog and saw you removed it from the manifest.

    It was removed because by allowing the script bot writer to specify it, they could try to impersonate another author. And although we could easily detect this, we figured it was a concern we'd rather not deal with, especially because we determine it server-side anyways. In the near future, I'm going to provide a better way for accessing meta data such as the author that doesn't involve reading the manifest directly.
