New Module::Build patch/release manager
Message ID:
I'm very, very pleased to announce that Leon Timmermans has
volunteered to be the new M::B patch/release manager and received his
co-maint bit today.

Leon has been working on abstracting the Build.PL API through his work
on Module::Build::Tiny and has gotten very familiar with the guts of
Module::Build as a result.  He is also working to extract more of the
reusable bits of Module::Build for other parts of the toolchain to
reduce duplication.

In my discussion with him about the role, he said that he is not
planning on any major work to Module::Build, but has agreed to
shepherd the future release process to ensure that his refactoring and
other incremental changes are tested and released for CPAN and blead.

Thank you very much, Leon!
