Propose Jean Boussier (@byroot) as a core committer
I would like to propose adding Jean Boussier (byroot (Jean Boussier)) as a committer. For years Jean has been doing great work with performance / memory optimizations, reporting and fixing bugs, as well as contributing features that really help real world applications. I think he would make a great addition to the team.
Just to highlight some of his contributions:
- Pushing this
Process.forkforward which is a continuation of this 10 year old ticket
- Adding API wrt GC timing here
- Providing easy repros for crashes here
- Doing cross project work among Ruby's built-in libraries to reduce memory usage:
- See 2de594ca98d95e62f7fcf000f21e174ac3f6fcaf
- And 71344a1d63038aa30328f91a180efb486ae4c19a
- And https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/18148
Jean is great at sticking to things and seeing them through to completion, even if it takes an incredibly long time. I think his skills and determination would make a great asset for our team.

How do you think this?
It's a bit scary, but a great opportunity to improve.
As for the instructions, I already followed https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby/wiki/CommitterHowto#What-to-do-for-registering-you-as-a-committer. Let me know if there's anything else I need to do.
