Developer Sarah Mei's most significant contribution to the Diaspora project: changing the "Gender" dropdown to a text field. It pissed off at least one person, who argues the text field is less usable than the dropdown, causes inconvenience to the majority to accomodate the minority, and will make it harder for the software to figure out whether to refer to its users as "he" or "she." Programmer-me sees these points, but human-me knows how alienating it can be when software doesn't allow you to accurately describe yourself. (I often still have to put my name in the "husband" field when filling out forms for married couples.) This is all to say, once more: nice work, Sarah.
