Re: Ian Lynch (ingotian) passed away

2015-09-04 Thread Roberto Galoppini
That's very sad, I e-met him about 10 years ago, we also tried to run some
business together when I was in the OOo business. I always found his
feedback and inputs valuable, he will be greatly missed and I wish all the
best to his family and relatives.

I had never met Ian, but I knew him as a key contributor in the
Education sector. He was also an OpenOffice committer and PMC Member;
his Apache id was "ingotian".

I hope that someone who knew him better will volunteer and write a
couple paragraphs for the OpenOffice blog in his memory.

2015-09-03 Thread JZA
Feel a bit bad since I knew about this news for the past few weeks. I didnt
want to be the one disclosing the news to the rest of the community since
other members also knew about this event and probably would be better
prepared to announce it. I remember working with Ian personally and
sometimes even phisically with the INGOT project, taking trips to south
america, and all across Europe. I pushed with him the vision of an
OpenOffice certification and others interesting projects.

Want to express on this list my sympaties for his family and coworkers on
the community.

On a formal note the PMC chair ought to probably notify root@ and
secretary@ of this.

I was a friend of Ian’s but not closer; this comes as a brutal shock. Still, I 
thank you for informing us. Truly, I am stunned and upset.

Ian and I had our differences but those were of long ago. More recently, I 
wanted rather a lot to work with him and possibly vice versa. Circumstances put 
that off—

Ian was also formerly a competitive weight lifter and had about him a boundless 
and infectious energy. All the more to find this news so very shocking.

I would love to. I suspect, though, that JZA might have volunteer? He worked 
with Ian, I believe.
