I'm very pleased to announce the reformation of a core RSpec development team:

Chad Humphries, a.k.a. spicycode, has been involved with RSpec since the 1.0 release, which he helped to usher out the door at RailsConf 2007. He subsequently authored Micronaut [1], a lightweight, RSpec compatible spec runner, which later became the basis for the rspec-core gem.

Pat Maddox has been contributing patches and blogging about RSpec and BDD since 2007 as well: most notably the =~ matcher for arrays and the last bit of glue that turned plain text stories in Cucumber's predecessor, the RSpec Story Runner (which succeeded rbehave) into a reality.

Justin Ko has been actively contributing patches and participating on the mailing list since last spring, but is probably best known for his creation of http://relishapp.com, which now hosts RSpec 2's documentation.

Myron Marston is the author of VCR [2], and has been contributing to RSpec since last summer. He has a keen sense of BDD, and his patches continually impress me with their thoroughness, attention to detail, and understanding of the wider Ruby ecosystem in which RSpec makes its home.

Please join me in welcoming Chad, Pat, Justin, and Myron to the RSpec development team.
