The result of the vote to to promote Pablo Salingo Salgado as core developer after one week is positive: I declare that Pablo is now a core developer, congrats! I will follow the usual process to actually make him a core dev, and ask him to write a short introduction email to this list.
But I also noted that Pablo lacks experience to be fully autonomous on merging pull requests, so I also requires that Pablo will have to be strictly mentored by me for 3 months. By strict, I mean that Pablo will have to ask me to merge any pull request. This strict mentoring may be extended depending on Pablo's progress. As Eric Snow wrote, I vouch for Pablo: don't hesitate to blame me directly if anything goes wrong :-)
Giving more responsibilities to Pablo is part of the learning process. Reviewing as a core developer is different than a review as a contributor: core developers are expected to actually merge a pull request once they approve the change. Merging a pull request is a big responsibility and an investment in the long-term, because the committer is expected to fix regressions and issues related to this change for next months, if not next years.
Note: Cheryl Sabella has also been identified as an active contributor who may be promoted as well. I am already discussing with her about that for 1 month, but last month, Cheryl chose to wait. I will keep you in touch ;-)
