This month at the end of the year has been rather quiet as well. The holiday season is not suited for lots of REJECTs, so all in all I marked 91 packages for accept and rejected only 14 packages. But be aware, the period of grace is over now.
This was my sixth month that I did some work for the Squeeze LTS initiative, started by Raphael Hertzog at Freexian.
This month I got assigned a workload of 20.5h and I spent these hours to upload new versions of:
- [DLA 99-1] flac security update
- [DLA 100-1] mutt security update
- [DLA 101-1] jasper security update
- [DLA 102-1] tcpdump security update
- [DLA 105-1] graphviz security update
- [DLA 107-1] unbound security update
- [DLA 108-1] nfs-utils security update
- [DLA 110-1] libyaml security update
- [DLA 109-1] libyaml-libyaml-perl security update
- [DLA 117-1] qt4-x11 security update
- [DLA 121-1] jasper security update
- [DLA 122-1] eglibc security update
- [DLA 123-1] firebird2.5 security update
- [DLA 124-1] unzip security update
This month I also sponsored the upload of [DLA 126-1] ettercap security update. As far as I know, this has been the first time that someone who is not (yet?) involved in Debian as a Debian Maintainer or Debian Developer prepared a patch for Squeeze LTS. So many thanks to Nguyen Cong for doing the work. Thanks to Toshiba as well, who allowed him to work on this package. I am sure there is more to come.
As December is the time of gifts, I also uploaded [DLA 104-1] pdns-recursor security update although no LTS sponsor indicated any interest.
Unfortunately the Debian Med Advent Calendar wasn’t as successful as the years before. Only five bugs in packages python-mne, avifile , biomaj-watcher, trimmomatic and uc-echo have been closed. Things can only get better …
