My Debian Activities in October 2017

FTP assistant

Again, this month almost the same numbers as last month appeared in the statistics. I accepted 214 packages and rejected 22 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was only 339.

Debian LTS

This was my fortieth 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 20.75h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1125-1] botan1.10 security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1127-1] sam2p security update for 6 CVEs
  • [DLA 1143-1] curl security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1149-1] wget security update for two CVEs

I also took care of radare2 twice and marked all four CVEs as not-affected for Wheezy and Jessie. As nobody else wanted to address the issues in wireshark yet, I now started to work on this package.

Last but not least I did one week of frontdesk duties.

Other stuff

During October I took care of some bugs and at one go uploaded new upstream versions of hoel and duktape (this had to be done twice as I introduced an new bug with the first upload :-(). I only fixed bugs in glewlwyd and smstools. This month I also sponsored an upload of printrun.

After about ten years of living without any power outage, some construction worker decided to cut a cable near my place. Unfortunately one of my computers used for recording TV shows did not boot after the cable had been repaired and I had to switch some timers to other boxes. All in all this was too much stress and I purchased some USVs from APC. As apcupsd was orphaned, I took the opportunity to adopt it as DOPOM for this month.
