Now that we've merged the geographic projections pull request (woohoo!!)
I'd like to nominate the person who took charge of that effort, Madicken
Munk, to be a yt project member. This took a serious amount of effort to
get done, both on the initial conception side and in working to improve our
testing and CI setup to include cartopy. Madicken has also expressed
interest in continuing to work on yt, including adding support for the
monte carlo radiative transfer code she uses for her nuclear engineering
work to yt, so having a commit bit will further enable these efforts.
According to YTEP-1776 we need three existing project members to +1 the
nomination. Once that happens I'll add her name to the relevant places on
the website and give her a commit bit on GitHub.
I e-mailed a while ago about the PR that I was working on,
https://github.com/yt-project/yt/pull/1966, which supports geographic
transforms and projections from cartopy in yt. At this point I think it's
ready to merge and it's passing the checks. Both Nathan and Matt have
looked over this quite a bit, so it'd be nice to get fresh eyes on it for
review (it also needs 2 more approving reviews). Would any of you mind
taking a look at it?
