Following OEP-54’s New Core Contributor Nomination Process, I would like to nominate Maria Grimaldi to be a core committer to the edx-platform, openedx-events, and openedx-filters repos (the latter two of which will move over to the openedx GitHub org in time).
@mgmdi has been a contributor to edx-platform since May of 2020, and has spent much of the past year as the primary developer for the Open edX Hooks extension framework (events and filters). The first version of the events portion of this framework is already available in Maple, and the first batch of filters was recently merged and will be available for Nutmeg. I believe this framework will be a key part of Open edX’s extensibility story in the years ahead.
Throughout the development process, Maria and eduNEXT have demonstrated a strong commitment to community engagement, with all major architectural issues being hashed out in this forum or in GitHub issues and pull requests. I’ve personally found Maria to be both patient and thorough at addressing any concerns I’ve had during the development of the project. I think the community is extremely fortunate to have her.
Commitment: As a member of eduNEXT, Maria would be committing to 20 hrs/month.
If you are a core contributor, please weigh in on this thread, and conclude with a definitive “yes” or “no” vote. Five “yes” votes are required to approve a new core contributor. You can read the full details in OEP-54.

This is great news! congratulations to @mgmdi and to the cc group which just gained an amazing member!
@mgmdi I’ve added you to the core contributors sprint checkins – at least I hope I did, I had to guess your email, as you’re not yet on the core contributors mailing list (FYI @sarina).
I’ve also added the other new core contributors from tCRIL who weren’t already included in the check-in: @feanil @ed @dave @kyle @arbrandes
