People to thank: Thiemo Seufer

I couldn't resist to publicly thank Thiemo Seufer for all the invisible work he (with others) has done to fix a series of problems in the mipsen toolchain. Thanks to his work on binutils and gcc, mozilla and offspring are now compilable on our 11 architectures, which was a quite big sarge blocker.

Sometimes I feel this kind of jobs are not rewarded by users as much as "package the latest GNOME/KDE/X/whatever" kind of job because it's not as visible, unless you pay attention to apt-listchanges or the BTS. But without them, there would be no GNOME or KDE packages at all!

Technological consultancy dedicated to the ingenieria for the development web: design web advanced, consultancy positioning in search engines, hosting, control.and integral solutions based on free software (servants of fax, internal mail, messaging).
Why people pay if they could get for free?
