For the 2.8 dev cycle, we’re pleased to announce that three contributors will be joining us as guest committers:
- Slava Abakumov (slaFFik) is the BP 2.8 release lead. He’s a longtime contributor to the BuddyPress project, where’s he’s had an especially notable impact on improving internationalization and extensibility.
- Stephen Edgar (netweb) will be joining the team to focus on build/test tools. He is a member of the bbPress team, and plays an extensive role maintaining build tools for bbPress, BP, and WP.
- Laurens Offereins (Offereins) has been contributing to BuddyPress since 2014. He’s been key in building out the Member Type and Group Type features over the last few releases, bringing a keen eye for spotting nasty bugs.
Congratulations to Slava, Stephen, and Laurens!
