I've been reviewing some of Pablo's PRs in the past few weeks. What
I've seen is a lot of great work and quick and positive reaction to
reviews and feedback. I'm excited to have him join the core-dev team!

I too think he would benefit from additional mentoring, including
specifically reviewing of his PRs. This is since I still often see
various small issues in his PRs, usually minor things such as
whitespace or out-of-date comments/docs/NEWS. This reminds me of
myself in my early days of contributing to Python; KBK had to be
patient with me until I learned to review my patches once more before
submitting them, and reach a more consistently high quality.
