The Debian Project has lost an active member of its community. Thiemo Seufer died on December 26th in a tragic car accident.
Thiemo was involved in Debian in many ways. He has maintained several packages and was the main supporter of the Debian port to the MIPS architectures. He was also a member of our kernel team, as well as a member of the Debian Installer team. His contributions reached far beyond the Debian project. He also worked on the MIPS port of the Linux kernel, the MIPS emulation of qemu, and far too many smaller projects to be named here.
Thiemo's work, dedication, broad technical knowledge and ability to share this with others will be missed. The contributions of Thiemo will not be forgotten. The high standards of Thiemos work make it hard to pick up.
To honour his contributions to Debian, the project decided to dedicate the upcoming release of Debian GNU/Linux 5.0
Lenny to Thiemo.
The funeral service will be held on Monday January 5th 2009, 13:30 at the Dominikanerkirche in Bad Wimpfen. If you want to express your condolences please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org . It will be passed on to Thiemo's family.
作为 Debian 项目多年的受益者之一，在此谨表示哀悼。我觉得自己也应该努力申请加入 Debian 团队，帮助维护至少 Lisp 相关的一些软件包，为帮助人们更好地使用 Debian GNU/Linux 操作系统，做出自己的一份贡献。
