Recently, the Debian Project has lost two members of its community.
Manuel Estrada Sainz (ranty) and Andrés García (ErConde) were killed in a tragic car accident while returning from the Free Software conference held at Valencia, Spain.
Thats not cool
the gnome people also lost 2 developers this year
it's a bad year for open source developers :/
I count 3 down for GNOME: Chema, Ettora and Finlay.. the last one I personally miss very much since I considered him a friend and ally.
Either way, I didn't know the two people in question, so it doesn't affect me personally, it is still sad when the open source community goes i-- though. Maybe they rest in peace.
My condolences to their families. :'(
AAAAHHH!!!! The one of the guys middle name is my last name!!!
