Gerhard Killesreiter

At the same time I invited Neil Drumm to help Steven and myself out with the next Drupal version, I asked Gerhard Killesreiter to help with the day to day maintenance of the current Drupal version, Drupal 4.7. Having a dedicated maintainer who's task is to secure the stability of the Drupal 4.7 release series is going to be extremely valuable. I choose Gerhard because he has the kind of unspoken commitment that a father shows to his child. That and he is particularly skilled in saying "no, only bugfixes are allowed", and "what part of 'no' don't you understand?" in particular. So far, it's been one of my best decisions in months.

Gerhard was incredible getting the 4.7 release out. If anyone runs into him (on the street, at conferences, etc), make sure and buy him lunch, or a beer, or a good cup of tea. He's earned it.

Your photography is absolutely stunning.. What type of camera do you use? - I hope you don't mind if I borrow one of your pictures on my own blog, SuddenlyISee (I will absolutely credit you) - You're welcome to drop by if you have a Xanga account, otherwise you won't be able to see it. (Sorry, I have it that way to keep out stalkers) Anyhow, again - your site is incredible..

Lol, not that you probably didn't already know that.

You missed his standard reaction to many patches: "This is the kind of stuff that will make baby Jesus cry!". :)

To his famous quotes, let's add "This is an evil hack!".
