I'm pleased to be able to announce that Alexandre Belloni and some of
his colleagues from Bootlin are going to be helping us with the process
for testing and integrating patches within the project.

As such, they are are going to be leading the SWAT process and you'll
therefore be seeing them giving initial responses on patches and
helping with the autobuilder failures.
I'd like to welcome them on board and hope everyone will support them
as we figure out how the finer details of this will work.
This is being made possible by support from the Yocto Project members
which is very much appreciated, thanks!
I will be continuing to do the final patch review and merge and am not
going anywhere, this is some very much welcomed support to try and
ensure we continue to scale and maintain our quality and testing.
