WordPress 4.5 Deputies

A few weeks ago, I put out a call for volunteers for deputies for WordPress 4.5.

Today, I’m excited to announce two deputies:

Additionally, the project usually has a few guest or component committers - a developer receiving commit access, generally for a single release cycle (sometimes renewed) and/or for a specific component. Mel Choyce (@melchoyce) will be a Design Deputy, with a focus on maintaining UIUI User interface/UXUX User experience consistency and handling design decisions throughout the release.

You’ll see him around both on the make blogs and tracTrac An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. helping to manage the release.

Please join me in congratulating them both, and feel free to pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” any of us with release questions as 4.5 gets rolling.
