Jan 2, 2009 — by Eric Brown — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 3 views

Linux and Debian open source leader Thiemo Seufer died in a car accident on December 26, says a memorial notice on Seufer served as binutils maintainer for five years, and helped advance the Linux/MIPS project, while also contributing to the Debian and QEMU projects.

Seufer contributed to the Linux/MIPS project for over eight years, and eventually joined MIPS UK, says the memorial posting, which was signed by Bdale Garbee, Steve McIntyre, Ralf Baechle, Daniel Jacobowitz, Aurelien Jarno, and Thomas Gleixner. Seufer was also instrumental in advancing the QEMU open source machine emulator. Seufer, who joined Linutronix in April of last year, was praised in the post for his technical skills, subtle sense of humor, and his “calm and considerate demeanor.”

Thiemo Seufer's funeral service will be held on Monday January 5, 13:30, at Dominikanerkirche Bad Wimpfen, in Germany. Condolences may be sent here, and will be forwarded to Thiemo's family. The memorial note on may be found here.
