For openSUSE he took over responsibility as an active member of our package review team and has served as openSUSE Board member twice, from 2011-2012 and 2014-2016.

    Das von uns Gehen

    ein kleiner Weltuntergang
    ein Stillstand der Zeit
    eine Sonnenfinsternis:
    das Erlöschen eines Blicks
    das Verstummen einer Stimme
    der Stillstand eines Herzens
    das Erkalten eines Körpers
    ein kleiner Weltuntergang
    ein Stillstand der Zeit

    im Wolkenbruch der Trauer
    im Adieu im Weitergehen
    den Namen fethalten
    ihn zum Rückruf
    gegen den Himmel werfen

    Thank you Linnell. RIP.
