killed in a helicopter crash in Alaska last week. The identity of
the crash victims was revealed yesterday.

Larry Augustin, CEO of VA Software, sent this note to the Linux
kernel developers mailing list yesterday:

“Many of you may know Linux kernel developer Leonard Zubkoff
(BusLogic and DAC960 maintainer, among other contributions).
Leonard was killed recently in a helicopter crash…

“Leonard was one of the smartest people that I know, and I
consider myself lucky enough to have been privileged to work with
him. He will be missed.
