Yes, his legacy lives on not only in Epiphany, but also Rhythmbox
which he also help start.  He will be missed. Condolences to the
family and friends.


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

We can look into that.

That's a great idea. He reviewed my first patches ever to a free
software project and his contagious enthusiasm was what put into
motion my career in open source.

He loved his work and cared about its impact on the life of others, so
I think he would have appreciated this kind of recognition.

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
