With Drupal 8 now adding new features on a regular release cycle, the Drupal 8 committers identified the need for additional release management. Today I am announcing that Chris McCafferty (cilefen) has accepted my invitation to be provisional Drupal 8 committer.

Chris is a United States-based web programmer at the Institute for Advanced Study who has worked with Drupal and the Symfony framework for over four years. He is also a core mentoring coordinator who has put in uncounted hours mentoring contributors in person and on IRC and has lead major issue triage sprints at DrupalCons in Los Angeles and New Orleans. In addition, Chris spreads the word about Drupal by mentoring at other events, such as OpenHatch Princeton.

Chris makes significant contributions to a wide variety of Drupal core issues. If you have worked in the issue queue in the last few years, you have probably interacted with Chris on topics ranging from front-end to the testing frameworks. He has the attitude and skills needed to foster collaboration among the talented contributors in the Drupal community and to continue releasing Drupal on time. Please join me in welcoming Chris.


Great news!
