My Debian Activities in November 2015

FTP assistant

This month I marked 352 packages for accept and rejected 61 of them. I had to send only 15 emails to maintainers.

I also started to work on #796095 and #796784, but my first patch was rejected. So expect more to come here …

Squeeze LTS

This was my seventeenth month that I did some work for the Squeeze LTS initiative, started by Raphael Hertzog at Freexian.

Due to Toshiba becoming the first platinum sponsor, I got a workload of 21.25h. This is a new and delightful record! Altogether I uploaded those DLAs:

  • [DLA 341-1] php5 security update
  • [DLA 343-1] libpng security update
  • [DLA 355-1] libxml2 security update
  • [DLA 356-1] libsndfile security update

I also started to work on two bugs that were filed against the pseudo-package, which are somehow related to the security team: #796095 and #796784 (see above). Moreover I started to work on the next php5 upload, which will happen at the end of December.

As more and more people work at the LTS frontdesk now, this month I could chill out a bit and let the others do the work.

Other stuff

As the Advent season started again I would also like to draw some attention to the Debian Med Advent Calendar. It was announced here and like the past years, the Debian Med team starts a bug squashing event from the December 1st to 24th. Every bug that is closed will be registered in the calendar. So instead of taking something from the calendar, this special one will be filled and at Christmas hopefully every Debian Med related bug is closed. Don’t hestitate, start to squash :-) .
