I am sorry to hear that Ferris has passed away. I found him to be a very kind and thoughtful person. He did some good work in helping get the Gentoo Foundation back on track, which I sincerely appreciate. He was an asset to the project, and a genuinely nice guy.

That's sad news for the foundation, for gentoo and more importantly for all those who knew him. I always appreciated (silently) his calm advice in this spheres.

R.I.P ferris.

Sad news yes... I did not know him personnally but from his posts on the MLs, he really seemed like a calm and competent person. We will miss him, and our thoughts should go to his family. R.I.P.

Wow, craziness ... just like that. We were working together on some stuff too, and though I'll admit we never quite agreed on certain stuff, one could *never* doubt his devotion.

R.I.P., buddy.

Ferris always had the best intentions for Gentoo, although we didn't often agree which direction it should go. I appreciated his abilities to stay calm under fire, to always be reasonable, to listen to others, and to respect their wishes.


I do really feel the same, we spend some time arguing details in the previous council, not always we reached an agreement indeed ^^
He did a lot for everybody.

He will be missed sorely
