Drupal core announcements: New provisional Drupal 9 core committers: Victoria Spagnolo, Ben Mullins, and Cristina Chumillas!

I am pleased to announce that Victoria Spagnolo (quietone), Ben Mullins (bnjmnm), and Cristina Chumillas (ckrina) have accepted our invitations to become new provisional Drupal core committers!

Victoria Spagnolo (provisional release manager)

Victoria Spagnolo (quietone) is based in New Zealand and has been contributing on Drupal.org for over eight years. She is a maintainer for the Drupal core Migrate subsystem as well as multiple contributed projects. Victoria is also an active contributor to the community Bug Smash Initiative, which aims to improve everyone’s experiences with Drupal by fixing bugs and reducing bug report response times. She received the New Zealand Open Source Award in 2018 for her contributions to Drupal.

Victoria’s patience, empathy, attention to detail, and issue triage skills make her excellently suited to her new role as a provisional core release manager. She will collaborate with current release managers catch and xjm to improve core process, manage technical debt and disruptive changes, and ensure that core releases are shipped on time.

Ben Mullins (provisional frontend framework manager)

Ben Mullins (bnjmnm) is a United States-based Drupal contributor, also active on Drupal.org for over eight years. Ben is a Drupal core accessibility topic maintainer and subsystem maintainer for the Claro theme. He works for Acquia’s Drupal Acceleration Team on a variety of Drupal core strategic initiatives and projects.

Ben will be collaborating with lauriii and ckrina as a provisional frontend framework manager. Ben has contributed extensively to helping solve tricky theme and JavaScript development problems without disrupting site owners’ experiences, so we look forward to his further input on Drupal’s frontend code. Ben’s knowledge about accessibility and documentation also adds valuable expertise to our committer team.

Cristina Chumillas (provisional frontend framework manager)

Cristina Chumillas (ckrina) has been contributing to Drupal for over a decade. She is a core usability topic maintainer and also maintains the Claro theme. Cristina contributed design and theme expertise to the Admin UI and JavaScript Modernization Initiative.

Cristina started out her career in the graphic design industry and had formal training in Digital Marketing and UX. While working as a freelancer, she started coding with Drupal and quickly became part of the local community, where she has helped organise many local events in her home city of Barcelona. She joined Lullabot as a front-end developer in 2019.

Cristina is also joining the frontend framework manager team provisionally with lauriii and bnjmnm. Cristina has already brought a wealth of expertise and leadership to the Drupal project, where she has patiently and successfully shepherded many long-running initiatives. We’re excited to see her continue the hugely impactful work she’s been doing under this new role.

Please join me in welcoming these new members of our core committer team!
