Debian developer Thiemo Seufer was tragically killed in a car accident in Germany, reports Debian Project Leader Steve McIntryre in an e-mail to the developers announcement list.

On December 26th, our good friend and fellow developer Thiemo 
Seufer was tragically killed in a car accident in Germany. Many of us
were privileged to work with him in his various roles in the Free Software
community, and he will be sorely missed [1]. He took responsibility
for much of the work needed to support the mips ports in Debian,
showing long-term commitment to that cause. He had also just
volunteered to be the primary admin for their buildds in the new team
setup, as mentioned below. On top of all his technical work, Thiemo
was also a really great guy to work with, and I was always happy to
see him at Debian meetings.

Thiemo's passing was a great shock to us all, and I pass along our deepest condolences to his family.

-- Steve McIntyre, Debian Project Leader
