Klee Dienes (sp?). He was one of the main dpkg developers in the old
days.  He's been essentially MIA ever since I've been a maintainer,
although I have seen a few messages from him.

The rumour mill held that Klee was working on dpkg, in his day job at
Apple, as a package manager for Mac OS X.  As far as I know, nothing
much like dpkg surfaced in the released versions of OS X...

I don't know of a link between Klee's work on dpkg and fink's.
