+\begin{frame}{{\tt DEVELOPERS} file: principle}
+  \begin{itemize}
+  \item A top-level \code{DEVELOPERS} file lists Buildroot developers
+    and contributors interested in specific packages, board {\em
+      defconfigs} or architectures.
+  \item Used by:
+    \begin{itemize}
+    \item The \code{utils/get-developers} script to identify to whom a
+      patch on an existing package should be sent
+    \item The Buildroot {\em autobuilder} infrastructure to notify
+      build failures to the appropriate package or architecture
+      developers
+    \end{itemize}
+  \item Important to add yourself in \code{DEVELOPERS} if you
+    contribute a new package/board to Buildroot.
