New Committers!

Usually, new committers are announced in line with release cycles, but we were all just too excited to wait until the 4.8 cycle started, so here they are!

First up, James Nylen (@jnylen0). James has been a driving force on the REST API, both when it was a feature plugin, and more recently in Core since the endpoints were merged. The tickets and comments he leaves on Trac are always thorough and thoughtful, his patches are consistently excellent, and his attitude is exemplary.

Next, Adam Silverstein (@adamsilverstein). Adam has been a regular contributor for years, bringing significant improvements to the Media Grid, as well as handling large parts of the JavaScript work around the REST API endpoints – both in wp-api.js, and tenaciously working on porting Dashboard features across to using the endpoints.

Rounding out our guest committer list, Felix Arntz (@flixos90). Felix has been a contributor to Multisite for some time now, writing excellent patches, as well as running Office Hours and Bug Scrubs. Not only that, he’s always been willing to jump in and help in any area of Core, showing the same level of enthusiasm and consideration across the board.

Finally, we have a bumper class of guest committers to make make permanent! Pascal Birchler (@swissspidy) and Joe McGill (@joemcgill), Rachel Baker (@rachelbaker), and Mike Schroder (@mikeschroder) are now permanent committers.

Please join me in congratulating James, Adam, Felix, Pascal, Joe, Rachel, and Mike! 🎉🔥⭐️👻💯
