The website doesn't say... how was/is the Clojure/core team selected?
Are they all Relevance employees, or freelance? Do you plan on ever
bringing more people on board? Although I'm not quite as qualified as
some of the others, that's something I'd potentially be very
interested in, particularly since the book Stuart and I wrote is now

Everyone was selected by me and Stu, and vetted by Relevance's normal
interview process. Some of the criteria:
(1) A history of demonstrated ability in Clojure and commitment to the
Clojure community. This can of course take many forms: open source
code (clojure itself or libs), writing about Clojure, speaking.
(2) Aptitude for, and interest in, working in a service setting. It's
not everyone's cup of tea; there are some very good developers who are
not interested in doing client work.

Other than myself, the Clojure/core team currently are folks working

Yes, as needed.

Relevance has a Hacker-in-Residence program so that people can try the
life for 6-12 weeks and see how they like it. Ping Stu off list if/
when you are interested.
Congrats on the book!
