We’ve hired another MusicBrainz developer!

I’m pleased to announce that Yvan Rivierre has joined the MusicBrainz development team! Yvan is not new to our community — he has been participating MusicBrainz development for some time and more recently has been attending our weekly community meeting. He’s submitted several pull requests to MusicBrainz already, and now he joins us as a full time developer.

Yvan’s nickname on all things MetaBrainz is now yvanzo, was formerly yvanz, in case you’re wondering what happened. Expect him to be around even more, helping bitmap to make improvements and changes to MusicBrainz. The MusicBrainz search infrastructure and hosting are no longer core tasks for the MusicBrainz team, leaving yvanzo and bitmap to focus solely on MusicBrainz. This brings us to a new level of dedication to our most important project and should allow us to tackle more issues faster focus new areas of improvement. (e.g. hopefully we can start making improvements in UX/UI this year!)

Welcome aboard Yvan!
