I was recently added as a core-dev (yes, saying it still makes me smile ;).

Python is an awesome language and I am happy to be a part of it.

Minor history:  I authored PEP 409 (raise ... from None), and authored most of the reference implementation for Enums (PEP 435).  I've been programming for a couple decades in languages ranging from x86 assembly to AS/400 CL (yeah, not really a language :( ) to Visual Foxpro, and I'm acquanted with several others.  Once I started using Python, however, my desire to spend any valuable free programming time on other languages just died.  Although I still need to get better at C (for Python!).

This is the first time I've really had the chance to work with a team, and I'm happy to say it has been productive, educational, and enlightening.

Welcome, Ethan!
