I (Andrew Svetlov) want to promote Karthikeyan, a developer from India, to the Python Core Developers list.
- Promote Karthikeyan Singaravelan
- Do not promote Karthikeyan Singaravelan
He has about 100 Pull Requests, 80+ were merged already; 5 PRs are waiting for review currently.
The main interest are of Karthikeyan is
unittest.mock library, he helped a lot to add async mock in Python 3.8; he helped me in my work on asyncio issues as well.
Also, Karthikeyan is very strong in reviews, both in formal text part and manual checking that the proposed change is actually working fine. There are about 400 Pull Requests where Karthikeyan was a reviewer in very different areas of the Stadard Python Library.
As a triager, he took a part in 125+ discussions on the bug tracker issues; I personally very appreciate this work.
Karthikeyan had participated in Core Developers Spring in London this year, some of you had a chance to meet him in person doring the event.
Last but not least, Karthikeyan recently received “Google Open Source Peer Bonus” award for his contributions to CPython.
I offer to mentor Karthikeyan for a month once he would become a core dev to help him with understanding our workflow and etc.
The vote is starting now and will be finished in a week as PEP 13 states:
… It is granted by receiving at least two-thirds positive votes in a core team vote that is open for one week and with no veto by the steering council."
