In memoriam pullmoll

Picture of Pullmoll

Today, we were informed that our long time contributor and maintainer Jürgen Buchmüller (pullmoll) has passed away.

With boundless dedication, Jürgen was one of the most prolific contributors to the Void project and sponsored the project financially, too.

He invested lots of his time in keeping GCC up to date and well tested, supplied tons of patches to port packages to new compilers and platforms and also took care of (co-)maintaining many packages, including several non-trivial ones, like OpenJDK and LibreOffice.

He was not only a dedicated and driven developer in the Void Linux project, he also was one of the friendliest and warmest people we had the pleasure to work with. Jürgen will be missed as a steady force and a calm and wise voice in discussions. Most of all, he will be remembered as a friend to all of us.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Jürgen’s family, friends, and loved ones.

Thank you, pullmoll.
