I propose to promote Xavier de Gaye as a Python core developer.
I noticed that he is proposing good patches since a lot time ago (first one around 2010! issue #9250). He now looks to be motivated to help porting CPython to Android. IMHO it's a good thing to support this platform. It's a common user request, Android platform becomes more and more popular.
Xavier proposed patches for the Python code, but also on the C code.
To be honest, I didn't look at his work closely, but he looks to be motivated and have a good knowledge of Python and even CPython internals.
I already asked him if he would like to become a core developer and he replied that he is ok, but it wouldn't change his motivation to contribute (he is already motivated ;-)).
Oh, and I propose to be his mentor to start in CPython.
So, what do you think of his profile?
