I just read Ettore passed away, I can't believe it. I didn't know Ettore very well, I just had a few mail exchanges with him in the past and I also met him at Guadec. He was the first one to propose integration of GnomeMeeting with Evolution.
The community has lost another great hacker in one month, such things shouldn't happen.
Condolences to his family, his friends and to Ximian.
