Submitting someone else's work? (Vintage Lens)

I accidentally found a Fusion tool that tries to emulate vintage lenses but i don't think the creator is checking this forum.

The setting is free on Github with the following instructions:
The VintageLens simulates vintage lens characteristics. It adds such optical artifacts as anamorphic flaring, ghosting and chromatic aberrations. To install the VintageLens tool copy the file VintageLens.setting into Fusion installation directory Drive:\Program Files\Blackmagic Design\Fusion\Macros\

Do you think we should make an atom ourselves mentioning the creator or should we find a way to communicate with him and ask him to join the club and do it himself?

His name is Einar Gabbassov in case someone here happens to know him.

Excellent question!

The first thing I would do is try to get in touch with the tool's creator. Send him a quick email and see if anything comes back?

If it doesn't; there doesn't seem to be a license or any clear copyright on the page. That suggests that the tool is pretty much open for people to use. I would then start a forum topic in the Macros forum so the tool can be tested, perhaps improved, and receive feedback from users. If all goes well and the tool is nice and people want it we can submit it to Reactor in here and make sure proper credit is given.

I finally managed to track Einar down and he said he needs a couple of weeks to check what it is we are doing with Reactor as he is currently in a lack of time. Hopefully he will join the forum as well and add the atom of his macro.
