""He was responsible for much of the work on the Debian MIPS ports and was always happy to help, sharing his technical excellence and good humour with many of us over the years. Thiemo's tireless efforts in Debian and many other projects will be sorely missed."

Of course, there are a *huge* number of new and updated packages for our users to play with and I can't hope to do them all justice here," he said.

"Asked whether he would be running for DPL again after having experienced a few stressful months when the project went through some major discussions about free software,, McIntyre said he was still undecided."
