The Debian Project mourns the loss of Clytie Siddall

February 4th, 2015

The Debian Project sadly announces that it has lost a member of its community. Clytie Siddall passed recently after a long battle with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Clytie was a contributor of Vietnamese translations to Debian and other projects for many years. Within Debian she worked on translations for the installer, dpkg, apt and various documentation. She also contributed translations within the GNOME community and many other projects. Clytie was also a GNOME foundation member between 2005 and 2007.

The Debian Project honours her good work and strong dedication to Debian and Free Software. Clytie's contributions will not be forgotten, and the high standards of her work will continue to serve as an inspiration to others.
