Stefan has died?

Post by Jackalo »

A snippet from the pearpc-devel mailing list...
Yesterday evening at 23:00 one of my best friends, one of my best critics, one of the most valuable programmers of PearPC, the one who could help me in all situations, the one with whom I had the best time of my life, died after getting hit by a train.

Stefan 'steveman' Weyergraf -- Rest In Peace. We'll never forget you.


======================================================================


I'll continue PearPC. But I need some time to understand this dramatic accident.

Well, being unfamiliar with the development team, I can't say I knew who Stefan was before this point. But since he's a friend of Sabastian and a developer for PPC, my sincere condolences. :(

What exactly does this mean for the project? Was Stefan an integral part of the team?

Stefan coded only a few parts, as far as I know. Sebastian appears to have been the main developer.

Well, Sebastian stated that he would continue with PearPC, but that he needed to have some time to comprehend Stefan's accident. Since only he and Stefan had CVS commit access, it will likely mean that no new patches will be integrated into the CVS main-line. Also, a lot of the bugs will likely be left until Sebastian recovers from this tragedy.

With that said, this is truly a terrible event, and Sebastian, IMHO, should take some time off. Don't expect any updates to PearPC during this time though.

Just my $0.02.

he probably is in heaven where he has a super mac with one of those new widescreens, and he's loving every minute of it.

That's so damn harsh.
I didn't know the guy personally, but what he's done for ppc and i expect alot lot more definitely won't go unnoticed.

Rest in peace Stef.
