My Debian Activities in December 2014

FTP assistant

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.

Squeeze LTS

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.

Other packages

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 …
