Dear Foundation members,

After a long and robust recruitment process, I'm very pleased to
announce our first new staff member in a while.
Emmanuele Bassi will be joining us tomorrow (3rd December) to take on
the role of GTK+ Core Developer!

Emmanuele has a long history of contributions to GTK, and has been a
Foundation member himself for over 12 years.
Previously working at Endless, Mozilla and Intel, where he contributed
to many components of the GNOME core development platform, I'm happy to
bring him on board to continue his commitment to the project.

I'm sure you'll all give him a warm welcome in this new role!


This is awesome news, and I'm extremely glad to hear that:

1) money is going to fund an excellent project / cause (GTK+)
2) we have such a well-known and talented (AFAIK, since I'm not a GTK+
expert) person working on this!

Yay Emmanuele!!

As long as nobody minds, I think I'll mention what I'm sure everyone
already knows: funding free software hackers, is probably one of the
best ways to improve free software, so I'm happy that the foundation
is leading by example!

One question: is Emmanuele given any particular tasks or direction for
GTK+, eg: does the GNOME foundation have any specific priorities
they'd like to address, or is it more self-directed?

Thanks again, and keep it up! Can't wait till there is a second
developer on board.
