digitalmars.D.announce - Say Hello to Our Two New Pull-Request/Issue Managers

I'm very, very happy that I can finally announce the news. Some 
of you may recall the job announcements I put out on the blog 
back in September [1]. Symmetry Investments offered to fund one 
full-time, or two part-time, Pull Request Manager positions, the 
goal being to improve the efficiency of our process (prevent pull 
requests from stagnating for ages, make sure the right people see 
the PRs in need of more than a simple review, persuade the right 
people to help with specific Bugzilla issues, etc).

Several people applied for the job, including some unknown in the 
D community. Ultimately, two people were selected: one to fill an 
administrative/managerial role, the other to fill a more 
technical role. Today I can tell you who they are.

Please congratulate Andrew Edwards and Razvan Nitu on their new 
positions! They have already been on the job for several days and 
are eager to make a difference.

Currently, their responsibilities are outlined here at:

https://dlang.org/foundation/prman.html

Please consider this a living document. We will amend and revise 
it as we learn more about what they and the community need for 
them to do this job right.

I ask that everyone please give them time to settle in. I expect 
we'll hear from them once they have, with some details regarding 
how they'll perform their duties and any relevant information for 
contributors.

Congratulations to Andrew and Razvan, and tremendous thanks to 
Symmetry for making this happen.
