Unsung Koha heroes – 23 Frère Sébastien Marie

Most people will never have heard of him, but Frère Sébastien Marie has been helping out with security in Koha. He has spotted AND fixed a number of security issues and can always be relied upon to offer good advice.

I think it’s another example of how lucky we are in the Koha community to have people with a very diverse range of backgrounds, from people in Monasteries fixing security issues to Scouts installing Koha for a merit badge. The community is a great place to be.

    I want to know more about this! Where does he work? How did he get involved in Koha? How does someone with expertise in security end up in a monastery?

    Do tell!

      > Where does he work?
      he is a trappist monk, so he work in/from his monestary. He’s french
      > How did he get involved in Koha?
      Monks are living in a monestary, it doesn’t mean they don’t have eyes and ears opened ! iirc, he contacted me & Henri-Damien a long time ago, we helped him setup his Koha for his library, and he made the rest

      > How does someone with expertise in security end up in a monastery?
      When becoming a monk, ppl usually have had a life. And -at least for catholic ones-, monestary ask very young ppl wanting to join to experiment/train a little bit before starting their new life. Sebastien Marie was a computer scientist *before* becoming a monk.
