+1 from me as well. I'd just put him on my shortlist of people to consider. I haven't gone over his patch history, but the two or three I've looked at before were high quality and cognizant of our culture. I think the Android support pretty much cinches the deal :)
I believe we had a discussion a while back about a few other potential new core developers. But, other than subsequently adding Davin, I don't know of anything that has happened with regard to the earlier discussions. Is it time to discuss your shortlist?
Sure. I might even be able to mentor someone.
My current shortlist is eryksun and paul.j3. I've finally got time to monitor the bugs a bit more now, so I hope I'll notice some others in a while.
Assuming Paul is interested, I could be his mentor, if others agree his patches are good enough. I'd like other people to actually look...it's been a while since I've reviewed any of his patches, or the design decisions he's advocating with respect to argparse. (Steven appears to be awol.)
PS: with respect to Victor's script wish, one of the reasons I'm suggesting paul.j3 is that very few of his patches have been committed, and they should be.
