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.
