Thanks

Fabio Scotoni provided much needed advice about testing, interface, packaging, and the general direction of the whole project. He also redesigned monocypher.org style sheets.

Mike Pechkin and André Maroneze found bugs in earlier versions of Monocypher.

Andrew Moon clarified carry propagation in modular arithmetic.

Mike Hamburg explained comb algorithms, including the signed all-bits-set comb described in his 2012 paper, Fast and compact elliptic-curve cryptography. This made EdDSA signatures over twice as fast.
