My Debian Activities in August 2016

FTP assistant

This month I marked 257 packages for accept and rejected only 26. Seems to be that I mostly choosed the high quality packages this month. I also sent 12 emails to maintainers asking questions.

Debian LTS

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

This month my all in all workload has been 14.75h. Again, 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 lshell and wget as not-affected, without doing an upload. Unfortunately I had to give up working on chicken. My scheme abilities appear to be rather rusty.

Further, I uploaded a test version for php5 that takes care of 17 CVEs and as requested by the LTS users, two additional bugs. After all tests are passed, I will do a real upload with DLA.

This month I also had another term of frontdesk work.

Other stuff

For the Alljoyn framework I fixed a compile issue with gcc 6 and could close RC-bugs
#831127, #831091, and #831198.
My patch was also accepted by upstream.

Unfortunately a bug in gtest resulted in #833636.

As gcc 6 is the default compiler now in testing, I could also close RC bug #831106.
