I haven't known that until read Jim's post and I was very surprised.
EPG took some of my patches and gave comments when I tried to use
jakarta products such as tomcat and ant with kaffe. 

I really regret him though I haven't met him. I'm fully agree your
idea, Jim. All of kaffe users should know him.

He also had been contributing for a lot of project other than
kaffe. We can find some of his works at following URL:


He was great.
