It seems to be a good month for new committers and hopefully they’ll spend they whole summer on our dear ports. Today I’m happy to hand Rong-En Fan a commit bit with Xin Li as his mentor. Yet another one for our perl team. Welcome!
And another one bites the dust. Boris Samorodov has been doing extensive work on the linux emulation parts in ports, including the recent upgrade to fc4, and on other emulation@ ports as well. This could not go unpunished! Let’s hope he can do even more work with his shiny new commit bit.
In what must have been the fastest vote ever on portmgr, in under 4 hours Martin Wilke was punished for all his good deeds and several hundred PRs. Maybe someday we’ll have more committers than ports….
It looks like spring is a good time for growing committer as they are popping up all around. Today I have the pleasure to welcome Shaun Amott to the ranks of the ports committers. Wish him luck, there are enough PRs for him to start his career on
