The Ubuntu Project has lost an active member of its community. André Gondim died on 3rd November after fighting with ill health for several months.
André was a major contributor of Ubuntu Brazil, the leader of the Brazilian Translations team and member of the Brazilian Community Council. He was 29 years old and married. Even despite his poor health condition, he was always there to support Ubuntu and the community.
The Ubuntu Project honours his excellent work and strong dedication to Ubuntu and the broader Open Source community. André was always there for others as a friend. He will be sorely missed and his dedication and contributions will serve as inspiration to us all.
Our thoughts are with his wife, his family and friends.
I remember when André joined the Brazilian Ubuntu community as a translator, and had the chance to see him grow and blossom into the legendary figure he eventually became. André BECAME Ubuntu in Brazil and I so glad his hard work and dedication is being acknowledged here!
