Yury and I want to to promote Irit Katriel to core developer. She’s already got triage rights and has made great use of them – she’s already mentoring the next generation of contributors.
Irit has also co-written a PEP (654, exception groups) for which she did 90% of the work (and 100% of the implementation, which includes hairy C code, new syntax, Python code, tests).
I’ve asked Irit and she’s excited about the possible promotion. If she is promoted, we’ll continue to mentor her during her first few weeks in her new role.
- Promote Irit Katriel
- Don’t promote Irit Katriel
PS. The promotion process is described here: 14. How to Become a Core Developer — Python Developer's Guide
