The Debian Project mourns the loss of Frans Pop
August 31st, 2010
The Debian Project has lost a member of its community. Frans Pop (fjp) died on August 20th.
Frans was involved in Debian as a maintainer of several packages, a supporter of the S/390 port, and one of the most involved members of the Debian Installer team. He was a Debian Listmaster, editor and release manager of the Installation Guide and the release notes, as well as a Dutch translator.
The Debian Project honours his good work and strong dedication to Debian and Free Software. Frans' broad technical knowledge and his ability to share that knowledge with others will be missed. The contributions of Frans will not be forgotten, and the high standards of his work will continue to serve as an inspiration to others.
The Debian Project is an association of Free Software developers who volunteer their time and effort in order to produce the completely free operating system Debian GNU/Linux.
