Subject: [ANNOUNCE] New committer: Matthias J. Sax

Hello everyone,

The PMC of Apache Kafka is pleased to announce Matthias J. Sax as our
newest Kafka committer.

Matthias has made tremendous contributions to Kafka Streams API since early
2016. His footprint has been all over the places in Streams: in the past
two years he has been the main driver on improving the join semantics
inside Streams DSL, summarizing all their shortcomings and bridging the
gaps; he has also been largely working on the exactly-once semantics of
Streams by leveraging on the transaction messaging feature in 0.11.0. In
addition, Matthias have been very active in community activity that goes
beyond mailing list: he's getting the close to 1000 up votes and 100
helpful flags on SO for answering almost all questions about Kafka Streams.

Thank you for your contribution and welcome to Apache Kafka, Matthias!

Guozhang, on behalf of the Apache Kafka PMC
