Samba project loses senior developer

By

The open source Samba project has lost one of its senior contributors with the death of Lars Muller on 1 October.

Müller was 46 and worked as a senior software engineer for SUSE Linux in Nuremberg.

In a tribute, the Samba project said: "Lars was known for his red hair, crooked smile, stubbornness, but above all, his willingness to go to any length to welcome a visitor or help anyone in need.

"His positive outlook despite overwhelming circumstances taught all of us what is most important in life."

Jeremy Allison, a senior Samba developers, said, "Lars Müller was a long-term Samba team member, a good friend of many people at SerNet and a diligent sambaXP participant.

There is no indication of the cause of death.

A SUSE spokesperson said the details could not be provided due to Germany's data protection laws.

Samba is a project begun by Australian developer Andrew Tridgell and provides an important component to integrate Linux/Unix Servers and Desktops into Active Directory environments.

It can function both as a domain controller or as a regular domain member.
