I nominate myself,

I've been working in the buildbot project since 3 years now.

I've contributed the initial gerrit/repo support, and am now working on the
nine new UI.

I'm working on this partly during personal time, and during my working
hours at Intel, where I'm the technical leader of one of the buildbot

I claim that being part of PLC is a personal engagment, and not an
engagment from my employer.
