Hi everyone,

One of the most active members of our small translator community and on
this list, Purodha, has passed away, his political party states
On his Meta talk page, he reported having had a serious health breakdown in
mid-August, but was recovering and even resumed translating. Unfortunately,
his recovery didn't last long. We'll have fewer Ripuarian translations in
the future.

He was active in the German-speaking community and there's a condolences
page on German Wikipedia:
