Hi all,

Have had a message asking people not to send gifts to the paypal on liqbase. It's in Tracey's name but linked to Gary's bank account so frozen till the estate is settled. We'll work out something for cards, flowers etc.

Thanks for sending this email Kathy. Even though many of us only know each other through our nicknames and avatars, the friendship we create through these projects is real. Being able to talk about that on a list or a forum is important I think.

Deeply depressing news. Condolences to Gary's family.

Sadly, there are losses in free software projects from time to time. Debian recently lost Frans Pop who had contributed a great deal to Debian. Usually projects make a note of the loss somehow, they way you've done, and sometimes I've seen various projects dedicate a release to the missing project member.
