I am recommending that we add Andrew Macpherson to the Maintainers.txt
I remember first talking to Andrew at DrupalCon London when he came to the Accessibility BoF then. It was hard to forget meeting him that first time because he was mostly blue, but also because he was clearly interested in this topic.
Andrew's been active in quite a few accessibility issues in Drupal 8 and is contributing some great work on this issue.
Accessibility is a big issue and we need more champions. We have a goal of meeting WCAG 2.0 AA for Core and we're good, but there is still a lot of work to do to get there.
Managing the issue queue is important, but so is educating the community. I do think that Andrew can and is willing to play a role in educating the Drupal developers about the importance of accessibility in Camps & Cons in Europe.
Especially with the new release cycle it will be important to see that new features are not introducing barriers to people with disabilities.
