Core Contributor Nomination - Navin Karkera

As per the Core Contributor Nomination Process , I would like to nominate OpenCraft’s @navin to be a core contributor!

Navin’s first community contribution to Open edX (that I could find) was in March 2022. Since then, he has merged the following in the openedx org:

At least one commit each across 4 different Tutor repos, and probably some other things I missed. :slight_smile:

Access Sought

I’d like to start him off with merge rights to the following repos:

  • edx-platform
  • openedx-events
  • event-bus-redis

Conduct and Caliber

Navin has been a joy to work with on the redis event bus project, and others I have talk to have expressed similar feelings. He has written several ADRs and worked across a wide swath of the ecosystem. I’d love to see his experience on the event bus help drive the adoption of that tech forward.


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

Comment Period
For this nomination to pass, Navin needs 5 positive votes and no unaddressed objections by June 9, 2023, a little over two weeks from this posting.


I have worked with Navim in some of those requests and I think the his Conduct and Caliber of contributions was generously demonstrated. I vote yes to this nomination.

Definitely! :+1: @navin is a great contributor to every project he joins - thanks for nominating him as core contributor @BrianMesick, the Open edX project should benefit well from getting more contributions from @navin , and the ability to review & merge more quickly should speedup the development of the current projects he works on.
