The overall size of the About MonoDevelop dialog is fine, however way to much space is give to the the top half with the nice scrolling effect of the contributors and not enough to the bottom half. Which for About MonoDevelop tab and Build Info tab is fine, however the Version Info tab only can show to rows at a time, and this has a lot of rows in it and is very difficult to get a quick overview of what is installed and at what version using this Tab.  

Possible solutions would be to string the scrolling names to less space. Also you could make the dialog resizable and when we need to look at the details we can size it to whatever size we want, this would be great as long as the resize was reset back to default the next time its open.

The assembly versions aren't actually useful information, better would be to show addin versions.

This was fixed a while back, the Version Info tab is now the size of the whole dialog.
