All Bruce had was busybox? Come on...
Bruce is a former Debian Project Leader. He is the primary author of the Debian Free Software Guidelines (on which the Open Source definition is based) and the Social Contract. He also did lots of other things for Debian. He is the founder of OSI, SPI and LSB.
He also does less visible but not less important things. I've seen him talking about open source and software patents at one of the FFII conferences in the European Parliament for example. I haven't really seen a lot of other key figures in our community do things like that.
I doubt you did as much for our community as Bruce did.
