Today we learned of the passing of a long-time contributor to the Linux and SpamAssassin communities. Jari Fredriksson ran a mirror for sa-update for a long time, contributed to our masscheck system, tested numerous releases, and has given us tons of great feedback over the years. He'll be missed. May his memory be a blessing.
Kevin McGrail, Chair Emeritus of the Apache SpamAssassin Project and one of the lead developers posted the following to the sa-users mailing list this morning.
Some know that Jari's mirror broke a few weeks ago and we've been trying to reach him.
I am sorry to [announce that Jari Fredriksson died on July 25th]. He was a great supporter of the project running an sa-update mirror, helping with our masscheck program,
testing releases, and just generally being a great member of our community.
On behalf of the entire project, I'd like to extend our condolences to him and his family. He will be missed. If anyone wishes to send a note of condolences it can be done through Jouni, his employer. https://www.jounivirtanenconsulting.com/contact/ Sincerely, Kevin A. McGrail -- Kevin A.
