Contributor shoutout

  • Jerico Pena from Rapid7. After some time exploring the project, Jerico came with an idea: how to add support for any stack to the cpython buildpack? After a good round of discussions (both in Slack and the WG meeting) with the maintainer’s team, the end result was merged and sparked some really interesting conversations. If that’s not enough, he even found time to help us beta-test the User Survey and has provided precious feedback to the project

Thank you Jerico, you are Paketo’s Contributor of the Month!
