Fedora’s Community Leader Needs Medical Help

UPDATE FROM MARCH 18, 2007: Folks, the latest news… Jack is OK now, and has received a lot of attention from the community willing to help.


I just received this post by RSS from Matt Asay’s blog. Jack Aboutboul, who is in charge of Fedora’s marketing, is very sick. He’s looking for help:

We are part of a very smart and very well connected community of people, especially when it comes to scientific matters. I know that a few years back Patrick Volkerding, creator of Slackware, had some crazy rare health issues and by posting online was able to find someone who led him to a proper remedy. I hope we have enough smart people around that will be able to do the same for me. Please pass this on to anyone you know, its a desperate plea for help. Obviously pass it on to scientists, doctors, pharmacists, etc. but please also pass this amongst non-geeks because I’m sure someone out there knows someone who can help.

If you have any ideas, please pass them along to Jack using contact information on his blog.

Think this is cool?
