I'd like to also throw my hat in the ring for 8.0 Release Manager. I've
quietly followed internals for a couple of years and have most recently
been involved with FIG as a project representative for the Phergie IRC
Project. Having recently retired Phergie I've stepped back from FIG. I also
am one of the maintainers of Joind.in and have release management
experience in several other open source projects. My primary motivation is
to learn more about the PHP internals process as well as working together
with you fine folks.
Thanks for the consideration!
