Snipa is a longtime contributor to Monero. He is best known for developing a popular piece of Monero pool software and supporting the network with well-connected nodes. He has substantial coding and auditing experience, and a desire to better Monero's processes.
luigi1111 will continue as a backup maintainer of the CLI repository.

### Website and Download Server Access
binaryFate will become the backup for control of the various core Monero domains, in addition to fluffypony. Domain changes are rare, and mostly consists of renewing the domains when necessary.
binaryFate and luigi1111 will take over the primary administrative responsibilities for the DNS records and the CDN, with pigeons and fluffypony as backup. These changes are typically triggered when a new release happens.
