GNOME lost an old friend last week. Malcolmn Tredinnick passed
away on Sunday, March 17. Malcolm was probably best known for
his work on Django, but before his work with Django, he was a
member of the GNOME community. He made contributions across the
entire GNOME project, and he served a year on the GNOME Foundation
board of directors.
Malcolm made great improvements to free and open source software
over the last 13 years. And more importantly, he made friends
wherever he went, and enriched our communities. He will certainly
be missed by everyone who had the privilege of working with him.
Our thoughts go out to his family and many friends.
Funeral services will be held on April 4th in North Ryde NSW,
Australia. If you’re in the Sydney area, you’re welcome to attend
and pay your respects. Please contact the Django Foundation
so they can put you in touch with Malcolm’s family.
