This last week we elected Boone Gorges to step up as the Plugins team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts.. Over the next week I will be working with him to get him up to speed so you should see updates from him starting next week.
