My Debian Activities in March 2019

FTP master

The was again a rather quiet month and I only accepted 25 packages and rejected 2 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 60. But this month also several new trainees started to work and already left a bunch of notes. They are new and want to reject everything :-).

Debian LTS

This was my fifty seventh 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 29.5h. During that time I did LTS uploads or prepared security uploads of:

  • [DLA 1725-1] rsync security update for five CVE
  • [DLA 1729-1] wireshark security update for three CVEs
  • [DLA 1734-1] libraw security update for seven CVEs
  • [DLA 1741-1] php5 security update for six CVEs

I also started to work on CVEs for putty.

Last but not least I did some days of frontdesk duties and tried to add my DLAs to the Debian Website. This is a new and yet unfamiliar part of the LTS workflow and, yeah, I am a webmaster now 🙂

Debian ELTS

This month was the tenth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-95-1 of rsync for three CVEs
  • ELA-97-1 of wireshark for three CVEs
  • ELA-99-1 of libssh2 for nine CVEs

As like in LTS, I also did some days of frontdesk duties.

Other stuff

I improved packaging of …

On my grafana challenge I uploaded golang-github-facebookgo-structtag, golang-gopkg-stretchr-testify.v1, golang-github-rs-zerolog. There is still more to come and aleady thanks a lot to Chris for marking all those for ACCEPT.

Related to the new LTS workflow, I answered the RFA for the merchandise website and handle all requests regarding its contents now.
