In another post it was mentioned that one of the maintainers for Jekyll passed away, here is a link to a nice article about him:
I didn’t know him but frequently saw him helping people here, sorry to see he has passed away. In hindsight I wish I had said thanks to him for helping create and maintain Jekyll, I appreciate it.
So to anyone else who has helped maintain Jekyll in the past or present - Thanks! your work is appreciated though you may not hear that as often as you should!!
