My Debian Activities in May 2019

FTP master

Nothing changed compared to last month, so this was again a quiet month. I only accepted 126 packages and rejected 15 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 156.

Debian LTS

This was my fifty ninth 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 18h. During that time I did LTS uploads or prepared security uploads of:

  • [DLA 1783-1] atftp security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 1803-1] php5 security update for three CVEs
  • [DLA 1807-1] vcftools security update for three CVEs
  • [DLA 1811-1] miniupnpd security update for six CVEs

I also helped the maintainer of lemonldap-ng to create his DLA 1791-1. Further I created a package for testing bind9 and wpa, but both failed miserably in the wild, so I have to start from scratch here.

Last but not least I did some days of frontdesk duties.

Debian ELTS

This month was the twelfth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-120-1 of php5 for one CVE
  • ELA-122-1 of curl for one CVE

As like LTS, the bind9 package did not really work, thanks to Roberto C. Sánchez for telling me this.

I also did some days of frontdesk duties.
