Thank you for developing, supporting, and growing Python. Your impact on science and education is so valuable, and I hope to continue encouraging users and learners of Python.
Thanks for all of the kind words. (Victor, I loved your summary of all the ways that people contribute to making the Python community and language.)
In the spirit of a Monty Python introduction...
What is your name? Carol
What is your quest? To combine Python and Jupyter to inspire and teach others.
What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? For an African or European swallow, you can use Python, numpy, and Jupyter to calculate, explain, and share this information.
A special thank you to Guido for encouragement, kindness, and conversations about electronics tinkering. I look forward to working with the CPython team.

Carol, just accept the invitation to join the Python core team on GitHub at https://github.com/python https://github.com/python and that's it! (I already subscribed you to python-committers under your Gmail account and Mariatta is taking care of recording the granting of your commit privileges.)

While at the PyCon US sprints the idea came up of offering Carol Willing developer privileges. Everyone at the table -- about 6 of us -- liked the idea and Carol also said she would happy to become a core dev, so I'm officially putting her forward for consideration.
For those of you who don't know Carol, she basically knows our developer workflow better than most of us. :) ; she's very active on the devguide and core-mentorship. Carol has also attended the PyCon US language summit two years in a row as a representative for the Jupyter project. She is actually so good with new people that she managed to get my wife to make her first open source contribution (something I never managed to do).
As usual, if you support/object to this idea, please say so. :)
Definite +1 from me (I was actually thinking of emailing Carol about the idea before I saw this thread)
