Chuck Bearden

Chuck is an XML guru and former Connexions employee who still contributes at sprints and occasionally on special projects. He did some sprint day XSLT fixes to allow authors to include fancier semantic features even while using Word/OpenOffice/GoogleDocs. (They were breaking the importer before the sprint). He also did some work creating unit tests.

Ying Jin

Ying joined us for the Connexions 2012 sprints and contributed code on the Google Docs CSS import fixes and better failure handling. She has experience with DSpace, Fedora and EPrints so we are hoping to lure her into adding more repositories to the list of places to publish from the importer.
