Congrats DD32

January 13th, 2010

For those that don’t know, DD32 or Dion Hulse has been granted core commit access to the WordPress project. Just from an outside looking in view, I think DD32 is more than deserving of this position as his contributions in and outside of the core have helped many.

On new commit messages you might start seeing a familiar name, DD32 aka Dion Hulse. He’ll be initially focusing on the areas he’s already contributed a ton to like automatic upgrades and HTTP. He has been a mentor to many and is not scared to jump into any part of the code keeping a positive outlook no matter how far down the rabbit hole he ends up.

If we look deeper into Matts post, this will be a trend for 2010. More people will be granted commit access to the core as a recognition of trust. I think this is a good thing as long as the number of core committers don’t get out of hand.

For anyone keeping score:
Non Automattic Employed Core Committers 3

    Holy Hannah, you’re up to an even half a dozen. Trac’s sure to rupture, no doubt. Hope you’re all wearing your hard hats. ;-) Glad DD32 has been brought on board.
