Michael Ford, known as “fanquake,” has become the newest code maintainer of Bitcoin Core, CoinDesk writes.

He was nominated at the recent CoreDev meet-up, according to the invite-only meeting's transcript. Following the nomination, Ford's key was added to the “trusted keys list” file on GitHub, allowing him to include updates and changes into the code.

Explaining the news, Ford wrote on on GitHub:

“I'll gain merge access and will continue with all triage/repo management work. I'll be focusing primarily on build system development with some guidance from theuni [Cory Fields],” he wrote announcing he had added his key to the trusted keys list.

Ford will be joining Wladimir van Der Laan, Jonas Schnelli, Marco Falke, and Samuel Dobson in the role of Bitcoin Core maintainer.
