After I consolidated and closed all issues but one, he wrote me, said he wanted to get more involved in Python development, and offered to help with that and other issues. Since then he has actively participated in 34 issues, submitting 1 or more patches to 20 issues, listed below. Of those, 14 are closed. I believe his work always or nearly always contributed to the commit. Another has been committed to 3.2 and is only open for backports and possible tweaks. Another is waiting for 3.3, another for my response. His activity has covered core, library, and doc issues. He can work on C, Python, and .rst code and text He has shown himself to be a careful reader of both code and text. He has also participated a bit on pydev.
> I believe he said last September, in private email in response to my query, that he would like full developer privileges 'someday'. Before I reviewed his tracker activity, I was merely going to recommend that we 'start thinking about' a promotion. But then I discovered that he had done much I did not know about, as several developers (me, Alexander B, Georg B. Eric A, Michael F., ...) have done commits involving his patches. So I now think, 'why wait?' I am confident that he will start with whatever cautions he is given, with issues that are either trivial or that have been reviewed by others.
