ROCK Linux developers gallery

Introduction

Hi all,
I will try to collect images of ROCK Linux developers here on this page.
I have created this page so that the contact between the developers gets more personal what I think will increase our motivation to work on ROCK Linux. ;-)

I know that these are not all people who contribute to ROCK Linux. So please when you have a Photo of a ROCK developer send it to me with a brief description and I will include the data on this page.
The data on this page may not be correct or missing so feel free to post updates and or corrections to me.
OK. That should be all by now. Have fun!

cheers Piotr "esden" Esden-Tempski

P.S. People are sorted alphabetically using their surnames as keys.

P.S.S. Grammatical and or spelling faults on this page are owned by their respective owner. ;-)
