Deis Welcomes External Maintainers

Deis is an incredibly active project on GitHub, with almost 4,000 stars and 600 forks. As activity on the project has increased, so has the workload of the core maintainers, who are tasked with responding to all new issues, fixing bugs, developing features, and helping the community.

In an effort to ensure that Deis continues to grow efficiently, we've asked two of our most active community members to join us as maintainers. We are thrilled to welcome Johannes Würbach and Manuel de Brito Fontes to the project as contributing maintainers!

Manuel and Johannes have both contributed a substantial amount of code to the project, have regularly helped users in IRC and GitHub, and have a great attitude. The project has benefited significantly from their contributions.

For more information on the Deis maintainers and their responsibilities, see the maintainer documentation in the project.

We're also always hiring folks to work on Deis full-time, so please reach out if you're interested!
