I am doing a Reddit AMA on Tuesday 30th August 2016 at 9am Pacific (see other time zone times here). Find out more here.

Today is a sad day for Free Software.

We discovered today that Seth Vidal was killed in a bike accident. Seth was very active in Fedora. He was the lead developer of Yum, a Fedora Project Board Member, active in CentOS, among many other contributions.

I didn’t know Seth well personally, but professionally he was a fantastic example of the passion and commitment that drives Free Software and collaborative community and he will be missed.

My condolences go out to Seth’s family, friends, colleagues, and our friends in the Fedora community and at Red Hat who knew Seth so well. I think it is important that we respect Seth’s family’s privacy at this time.
