It is with sadness that we note the passing of long time FreeBSD committer, John Birrell. Many in the FreeBSD community had the opportunity to interact with John online and perhaps meet him in person at a BSDCan. He will be missed.
It is now possible to make a donation to the FreeBSD Foundation in memory of someone. Select the “in memory of” button on the donation page and type in the name of the person the donation is being made in memory of.
