Hey Guys,
Don't know if everybody has seen this yet.  Ian Murdock - The "ian" in Debian has died.  The Deb was for his girlfriend/wife/ex-wife.  Not a lot of details about what happened.  There was some bizarre stuff in his twitter feed, an apparent incident with the police and apparently he took his own life some time afterwards.  The family is asking for privacy so I doubt we'll get any details for a while.
I'd never met Ian in person.  I did have several phone calls with him during the Linux Global Partners/Progeny days.  He always came across as very humble and a nice person.
So please keep him and his family in your thoughts and your prayers.
God speed Ian and may God have a Linux workstation waiting for you when you get to Heaven.
