My Debian Activities in January 2018

FTP master

This month I was distracted from NEW by private stuff, so I only accepted 141 packages and rejected 4 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 361.

Almost two years ago Moritz filed #817286. After some time of inactivity, this bug draw CIP’s attention. Civil Infrastructure Platform is a project under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation. Their basic goal is to provide security support for a very long time (10 years for software and 15 years for the kernel).

Debian LTS

This was my forty third 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 18.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1252-1] couchdb security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 1255-1] bind9 security update one CVE
  • [DLA 1258-1] wireshark security update for three CVEs
  • [DSA 4101-1] wireshark security update for three Jessie CVEs and three Stretch CVEs
  • [DLA 1263-1] curl security update one CVE
