Re: Marco

This is terrible news. I remember fondly working with him on Epiphany many years ago. His patience and good character were instrumental in getting me started on this whole crazy business, as I'm sure it was the case for many others.

He will be missed, and I'd humbly suggest the Foundation to dedicate the next stable release of GNOME to his memory.

I unfortunately have some terrible news, Marco Pesenti Gritti passed away last Saturday in London, after a long fight against cancer. He was with his family and in good medical hands. He leaves behind his girlfriend Daniela and 4 year old daughter Daniela. I had the chance to say goodbye last week, and convey thoughts and support for his coworkers, current and passed.

I was lucky to have worked with Marco for many years at litl, on a very broad range of projects, and had the chance to count him as a good friend. He was the most passionate and dedicated hacker I knew, and I know he was extremely respected in the GNOME community, for his work on Epiphany, Evince and Sugar among many others, just like he was at litl. Those who knew him personally know he was also an awesome human being.

We will try to help his family as much as we can. He will be sorely missed.
