I certified dsandras today, the first time I did a certification in ages. I did it for a number of reasons- mostly those cited by DV. But additionally because he has mastered the art of perserverance and tact. GnomeMeeting is an underappreciated and under-respected app that has sucked up a lot of Damien’s time and effort. That he has perservered and continued to contribute, despite the lack of glory, is, I think, an important difference between being ‘just a hacker’ and a true master of Free Software.
