Debian Project mourns the loss of Ray Dassen

The Debian Project has lost a member of its community. Ray Dassen (jdassen) died on May 18th.

Ray was a Debian Developer for an incredible 19 years. He joined the
project in 1994, and continued to be an active contributor until
recently. He was involved in Debian as a maintainer of several packages,
particularly Gnumeric, and was a driving force behind the creation of
the Debian Gnome team.

The Debian Project honours Ray’s great work and his strong dedication to
Debian and Free Software. His technical knowledge and his ability to
share that knowledge with others will be missed. His contributions will
not be forgotten, and the high standards of his work will continue to
serve as an inspiration to others.
