Jon Cave, who many of you know as duck_, is now a permanent committer, joining core developers @koopersmith and @dd32. He has been a guest committer for the last three WordPress cycles, and continues to grace all of us with great code and a sharp eye for both code review and security (he’s often found on Trac cleaning up my messes). He’s also a great guy and always willing to help. Twitter: @joncave.
Helen Hou-Sandí, who now simply goes by helen on Trac (and in WordCamp San Francisco keynotes), is now a guest committer for WordPress 3.6! She’s a committer with a focus area — front-end dev. She’s made a tremendous impact to WordPress core over the last year, working hard on the user interface, CSS, and accessibility, and running weekly meetings in #wordpress-ui. And, her code is pitch-perfect. (See what I did there, I made a music joke, since she’s also a collaborative pianist who studied at the Eastman School.) Twitter: @helenhousandi.
Congrats, both of you.
