Detailed Description

This class is used to store information about a person or developer.

It can store the person's name, a task, an email address and a link to a home page. This class is intended for use in the KAboutData class, but it can be used elsewhere as well. Normally you should at least define the person's name. Creating a KAboutPerson object by yourself is relatively useless, but the KAboutData methods KAboutData::authors() and KAboutData::credits() return lists of KAboutPerson data objects which you can examine.

Example usage within a main(), retrieving the list of people involved with a program and re-using data from one of them:

KAboutData about("khello", i18n("KHello"), "0.1",
i18n("A KDE version of Hello, world!"),
i18n("Copyright (C) 2014 Developer"));
about.addAuthor(i18n("Joe Developer"), i18n("developer"), "[email protected]", 0);
QList<KAboutPerson> people = about.authors();
about.addCredit(people[0].name(), people[0].task());
