The Daily Durham site is reporting
that Fedora developer Seth Vidal has been killed in a hit-and-run
accident. Seth was perhaps best known as the creator of the "Yum" package
management system; he will be much missed in the community.
Update: see also this note from
Fedora project leader Robyn Bergeron. "To say he will be missed is
an understatement. He has been a colleague, a team member, a source of
wisdom and advice, and above all, a friend and inspiration to countless
people in the Fedora community over the past decade. His seminal and
invaluable work in Fedora and free software will live on for years to come,
and the legacy of his spirit will stay with the community, and with many of
us individually, forever."
