Excellent news. Is there an "org chart" that has all this info in one
place? Thanks for keeping us updated on all this.

The Wikimedia Board would like to announce that Tim
Starling has been
appointed to the official position of developer liaison.
Brion Vibber is currently on a wikibreak, but it is expected than he
might also hold an official position related to development tasks when
he is back.
The Board would like to encourage the creation of a developer
committee whereby certain developers are assigned responsibility for
ensuring that tasks, such as buying servers, are carried out in an
efficient and timely way. It is expected that a number of non-official
positions will be created by this committee, and that particular
developers can be named in certain roles if the committee feel that
would be beneficial.
Tim Starling's role would include documenting the activities of this
committee so the community are aware of who to contact about different
issues, and to ensure smooth communication between developers.
The title is not meant to imply they Tim Starling does, or is expected
to do, more development work than anyone else. He will be the first
point of contact between the developers and the Board. The aim of this
position is to improve communication, both within the development
team, and between them, the Board and the community.
