It’s that time again… Please join me in welcoming Tammie Lister (@karmatosed) as a guest committer for WordPress 4.4. There’s another committer to be announced, but we thought we’d wait until he’s back from vacation for a proper welcome.
You may recognize Tammie from her role as an admin on the theme review team, and she’s also a theme developer extraordinaire at Automattic. Tammie will be heading up development of the new default theme, Twenty Sixteen.
The lead developers review and appoint new committers to serve each release cycle, often to work on a particular component or feature. This guest commit access comes up for review after each release and can be renewed. Ella Van Dorpe, Konstantin Obenland, and Weston Ruter, all new committers at the beginning of the 4.3 cycle, have been renewed for 4.4.
Over the last few cycles, both Aaron Jorbin and Jeremy Felt have been working through long-term plans, smashing through tickets, and improving the entire codebase, especially when it comes to tests and multisite. I’m happy to announce that both are now permanent committers. Please join me in congratulating everyone!
