Mistaken acknowledgements
Correcting mistaken spelling in published acknowledgements

Feed your inner narcissist.

Acknowledgements and other matter may be among the hardest things to 
proofread. It is not surprising that mistakes sneak through.

I have set up a little wiki to provide a mechanism to connect names to 
the published sources that sought to acknowledge them.

Instances of mistakes welcomed
