General messages

Dear developers,

This week begins with very interesting news!

First, @Hlavtox has accepted the maintainer offer and joined us as scoped maintainer for Classic and Hummingbird themes! This is a first for the project, big thanks for joining the team Daniel!

Second, PrestaShop release moved to Validation stage. For three weeks the maintainers team have been exploring and fixing multiple issues to build this stable patch version. We have high hopes that this patch version filled with very nice bug fixes will be delivered soon!

Finally, committer role was introduced to the project. This is a new role similar to maintainer, that should allow contributors willing to help reviewing and triaging contributions, to join the group effort.
