In order to help with existing maintenance and to be able to take on more repositories in the next phase of the maintainership pilot, Axim will be hiring 3 contractors that can help with the existing and future maintenance of any repositorys that Axim maintains.
The new team will be called the Aximprovements Team. In order to do a lot of the maintenance work they need to accomplish, they will need access to repositories on day 1 to be able to merge maintenance PRs. This is outside the CC program and will only be relevant to repos that Axim maintains through the maintainership program. However, since this is a bit abnormal, I wanted to keep everyone informed about the happenings.
More info about the team and their work can be found here: Aximprovements Engineering Team - Open edX Community - Open edX Community Wiki
We’ll update that as we have more info.
