Debian Project mourns the loss of Thiemo Seufer
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
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.
