We have a new PMC member who hasn't done much (if any) work on the actual
code base of Wicket, but runs an awesome twitter account [1] posting
new projects
and applications using our framework, posting job listings etc. We wanted him to
continue to do so and acknowledged that he found sites and jobs we were not
doing, so it was only logical to ask him to become a PMC member and our true
social manager!

We *trust* him to do good with the twitter account and wanted to give him the
official seal of trust by inviting him to the PMC. If and when he finds time to
contribute in other ways, we will be welcoming.
