Core Contributor Nomination: Gábor Boros

As per the Core Contributor Nomination Process, I would like to nominate @gabor to be a core contributor with merge rights to the new k8s-harmony repo.

Gábor’s first community contribution to Open edX was in September 2020. Since then, he has:

Of particular relevance to this nomination for the Harmony project are his work on Tutor, deployment in general, and also the fact that he is the maintainer and one of the main developers of Grove, which is our open source app for managing containerized deployments of Open edX that integrates with Tutor and soon, with Harmony. He also worked on containerizing our internal infrastructure and on our open source helm charts. So he has a lot of relevant expertise.

Conduct and Caliber

Gábor is an experienced and capable developer, with great communication skills, and he has shown great collaboration skills within our team and with the broader community.


As a member of OpenCraft, Gábor would be committing to 20 hours / month.
