My Debian Activities in July 2015

FTP assistant

This month I marked 485 packages for accept, rejected 87 of them and had to send 18 emails to maintainers. The NEW-queue is below 100 again, but you hardworking fellows don’t make a break, but start the GCC5 transition. This is so much fun :-).

Squeeze LTS

This was my thirteens 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 15h and I spent again most of it to work on a new upload of php5. I finally prepared the patches for the CVEs and realized only then that the number of failed tests drastically increased. So return to beginning and checking why everything is broken now :-(.

  • [DLA 269-1] linux-ftpd-ssl security update
  • [DLA 271-1] libunwind security update
  • [DLA 280-1] ghostscript security update
  • [DLA 281-1] expat security update

The patch for [DLA 269-1] was prepared by Mats Erik Andersson.

This month I also had another term of doing frontdesk work. So I answered questions on the IRC channel and looked for CVEs that are important for Squeeze LTS or could be ignored.

Other stuff

This month I could finally finish the harminv transition and all affected packages migrated to testing meanwhile.

I also uploaded a new version for pipexec.


Again, thanks alot to all donors. I really appreciate this and hope that everybody is pleased with my commitment. Don’t hesitate to make suggestions for improvements.
