You’ve ever wondered about who is in the core team of WordPress? Last year in Portland Jane Wells was talking about “How WordPress Core Decisions Get Made“.
I compiled some information about the Who is Who of the core team into a nice looking infographic.

About Jane Wells: Works for the WordPress Foundation and employee of Automattic. She describes her role as Community Lead for the WordPress project to which she started to contribute to after doing interfaces/experience related work for years. She is one of the very few females – if not the only one – in a decision-making-position.
1.) Andrew Nacin works for Matt Mullenweg’s investment and research company and not (as I had it in the chart first revision) for Automattic, Inc. 2.) Daryl Koopersmith is a student and not an Automattic employee. Both points have been corrected, thanks for all the feedback so far.
Note: The talk was held in September 2010. Keep that in mind when framing the context. It is based on a view of her which she formulated in a talk but this does not mean that my graphic is her expression. It’s not, this graphic is my own expression, albeit her talk is an important source – as credited. Next to that Jane Wells already announced that there is more to share next to her talk and you can read her in comments below.
