Many of us know Yoyo Fernandez, a very active and dedicated Pardus user from Spain. In particular, he has done a lot to promote Pardus in the Spanish-speaking community, with his "Pardus Life" blog and a Spanish-language user forum (Foro Pardus-es).
On 12 July 2012, he announced that he is leaving Pardus (although he left his best wishes for the success of the Anka Project) and will likely need to shut down the Pardus Life blog unless someone volunteers to take it over. His announcement was published here:http://tinyurl.com/73htavx
For those who don't read Spanish, I've extracted a few snippets from his article and will include a translation:
Yo ya he llegado a mi límite y no tengo fuerzas para continuar sólo con esto,
soy consciente de que si yo abandono esto puede morir, de ahí que deje la puerta
abierta por si aún queda alguien con ilusión de continuar el proyecto Pardus
I've reached my limit and don't have the energy to single-handedly continue
with this. I'm aware that if I abandon this [blog], it might die, so I'm leaving
the door open in case anyone else would like to continue the Pardus Life project.
A raíz de todo este asunto de la caída de Pardus y después de un tiempo aún
publicando aquí sobre Pardus y KDE, he vuelto a Gnome, a la que siempre fue mi
casa. He vuelto a mis distribuciones .deb con Debian y SolusOS y para ser
sincero no voy a continuar con KDE.
Due to Pardus's downfall (decline) and after some time during which I was still
publishing here on Pardus and KDE, I've gone back to using Gnome, which I always
considered as my "home" desktop environment. I've returned to my .deb-based distros,
Debian and SolusOS, and to be honest I don't plan to continue with KDE.
I would also like to notify you that the domain http://parduslife.com/
is about to
expire and I will not be renewing it, so this blog will go back to using a subdomain
with Wordpress: http://parduslife.wordpress.com/
Y bueno, no quiero hacerme más extenso, si aún queda alguien que tenga pensado
seguir con Pardus y desea colaborar con el blog o foro, que lo deje dicho en los
comentarios y lo hablamos para ver si hay posibilidad de agregarlo como autor al
blog y así pueda publicar :-)
Well, I don't wish to write at length, [so] if there is someone who still plans to
use Pardus and would like to collaborate on this blog or the [Spanish-language] forum
[Foro Pardus-es], please leave a comment and we will discuss the possibility of adding
him/her as a blog author, so that the blog might continue being published.
I'd like to publicly thank Yoyo for everything he has contributed to Pardus, and for so freely sharing his Pardus knowledge and expertise. Yoyo, we will miss you.
I wish you the best of luck in your Linux travels.
