Frans Pop contributions to Debian has already been honoured: Frans Pop obituary by Steve McIntyre. One less known fact is that he hacked in upstream linux-2.6 too. Latest linux-2.6 git lists him with 80 commits. A bigger part of his work was testing latest linux-2.6 on different architectures. There are lots of patches with "Reported-by: Frans Pop " and "Tested-by: Frans Pop ". Also in this field he was aiming for big coverage and a special responsive tester.

I am very sad to have missed the opportunity to meet you in person. You are missed. Rest in peace, my friend.
