Subject In Memory of Bruce Atherton
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2013 19:49:46 GMT
The Apache Ant community deeply regrets the passing of Bruce Atherton,
one of its long-time contributors, after a long fight against leukemia.

Bruce joined the Ant developer list in late 2001 and became a commiter
in 2002. He was the inventor of Ant's selector framework and an early
contributor to design ideas for Ant's resource abstraction and the
Antlib extension mechanism. His code and ideas are used by many Java

He always pressed for clean designs in a calm and gentle way. During the
past few years he was limited by his illness but remained an important
voice in discussions when he had the strength to chime in.

Ant would not have been the same without Bruce; we miss him.
