In recognition of their many contributions to the community and to the development of Islandora CLAW, the Islandora CLAW committers have asked Rosie Le Faive (UPEI) and Mark Jordan (SFU) to become a committers and we are pleased to announce that they have accepted!
Rosie has brought her dedication to user experience and documentation from the 7.x stack to Islandora CLAW, providing guidance on how to improve the front end and working as the convenor of the UI Interest Group (currently on hiatus) to develop a welcoming first experience for the Islandora CLAW sandbox environment. As co-convenor of the Metadata Interest Group, Rosie has also been integral to the process of plotting out our MODS to RDF mapping so that users of Islandora 7.x can make the move to Islandora CLAW with their MODS in tow.
Mark has joined the Islandora CLAW party more recently, but hit the ground running, developing tools such as RipRap, a fixity-auditing microservice that acts as a successor to Islandora Checksum Checker. Mark's focus on preservation tools fills an important gap in the CLAW ecosystem.
Both Rosie and Mark are also Committers on Islandora 7.x, and now join the short list of dual Committers.
