What if a former reviewer becomes part of the dev team?

Hello WordPress community,

I’m reaching out for some advice regarding a unique situation with my plugin, AI for SEO (https://projectdmc.org/plugins/ai-for-seo/). I want to ensure I’m handling this ethically and in line with WordPress guidelines.

A user named “inweco” previously left a review and rating for my plugin. Recently, inweco has joined our development team and is now actively contributing to the plugin. My concern here is that having a team member’s review on our plugin page could be seen as a conflict of interest.

Is there a standard procedure for handling situations like this in the WordPress community? Any advice or direction from the WordPress team or community would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Best regards,
André Erbis @ Space Codes
