We’re very excited to announce that core Git member Jeff King will also be joining the team today! But don’t call him Jeff, he prefers Peff. Peff is one of the most active contributors to Git and will be using his expertise and hardcore C skills to make Git even better and more usable.
I could expound upon everything that Peff’s done for the Git project, but instead let me just show you this list of the top ten commiters to Git:
$ git log --pretty=format:%aN | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn 8740 Junio C Hamano 1384 Shawn O. Pearce 1096 Linus Torvalds 719 Johannes Schindelin 499 Jeff King 465 Eric Wong 434 Jakub Narebski 394 Jonathan Nieder 344 Nicolas Pitre 322 Paul Mackerras
Welcome to the team, Peff!
