Default Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 "Lenny" to Thiemo

The Debian Project has lost an active member of its community. Thiemo Seufer died on December 26th in a tragic car accident.

Thiemo was involved in Debian in many ways. He has maintained several packages and was the main supporter of the Debian port to the MIPS architectures. He was also a member of our kernel team, as well as a member of the Debian Installer team. His contributions reached far beyond the Debian project. He also worked on the MIPS port of the Linux kernel, the MIPS emulation of qemu, and far too many smaller projects to be named here.

Thiemo's work, dedication, broad technical knowledge and ability to share this with others will be missed. The contributions of Thiemo will not be forgotten. The high standards of Thiemos work make it hard to pick up.

To honour his contributions to Debian, the project decided to dedicate the upcoming release of Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 "Lenny" to Thiemo.
