Vote to promote Cheryl Sabella as a core developer

+1 to bringing Cheryl in.

+1 from me as well. I took a quick look at the commits and I appreciate the focus on the TDD + it’s a name I’ve seen popping up on the bug tracker for a while now, denoting passion/involvement.

+1 for sure.

+1 too, seen Cheryl many times on b.p.o, PRs, and the doc, I only have positive feedback in mind so an obvious +1 for me too :smile:

+1 from me.

Any reason this wasn’t done as a poll for easier tracking of the results?

5 posts were split to a new topic: How to collect votes for proposed new core devs?

+1. Work with her on some issues, definitely qulified.

+1 for Cheryl from me too.

Agreed, I don’t think the current process (ask for votes and comments on the list/Discourse) has caused us any problems so far, so why fix what isn’t broken?

+1 from me as well - after noticing her contributions last year, I actually asked Cheryl if anyone was already helping her navigate the path towards become a core developer in her own right (and Victor and Terry had already taken that on by the time I asked).


FYI I moved the discussion about how to collect votes to a separate topic but I left Paul’s comment here as it included his vote for Cheryl.

It seems excellent work. Thanks and +1 to her.

The Steering Council accepts the vote to promote Cheryl Sabella as a core developer. Congratulations Cheryl!


I simply cannot thank everyone enough. From my first :tada: from Mariatta up through my nomination and promotion to core dev, this has been an incredibly welcoming community. My experience here has been much more than just about Python and that’s what has impressed me the most. You are all amazing people and I’m grateful to be part of this.

And I would be remiss not to thank Guido for creating this community. CPython was the first open source project that I contributed to and I really hit the jackpot to find a nurturing group instead of a toxic one. I know that came from the top down, so thank you.


This warms my heart to hear. :smile:
