My Debian Activities in July 2016

FTP assistant

This month I marked 248 packages for accept and rejected 60. I also sent 13 emails to maintainers asking questions. Again, this was a rather quiet month without much trouble.

Debian LTS

This was my twenty-fifth month that I did some work for the Debian LTS initiative, started by Raphael Hertzog at Freexian.

As the number of participants increases, this month my all in all workload has been only 14.70h. Strangely enough, most of the time I choosed packages, where at the end the vulnerable code of the corresponding CVE was not present in the Wheezy version. So I could mark several CVEs for bind, libgd2 and mupfd as not-affected, without doing an upload.

Nevertheless I also did two uploads to fix another two CVEs:

  • [DLA 563-1] libgd2 security update
  • [DLA 569-1] xmlrpc-epi security update

As there arrived some new CVEs for PHP5 I didn’t do an upload this month. But don’t purge your testing environments, a new version is comming soon :-).

This month I also had another term of frontdesk work.

Other stuff

For the Alljoyn framework I took care of RC-bug #829148.

I also uploaded a new version of rplay to fix #805959.

In the Javascript world I could close #831006
