From Andrew Woods, Fedora Tech Lead, on behalf of the Fedora committers and leadership

The Fedora Project committers and leadership have asked Ben Pennell,UNC University Libraries,  to become a committer and we are pleased to announce that Ben has accepted.

Ben is a skilled developer and has worked with Fedora 4 since its earliest days.  From his initial contributions in the development of the authorization code to his work on the more complex tasks in the import/export tooling, Ben has consistently proven himself to be a strong community asset. The project is thrilled to bring him on board more formally.
