My Debian Activities in December 2020

FTP master

This month I only accepted 8 packages and like last month rejected 0. Despite the holidays 293 packages got accepted.

Debian LTS

This was my seventy-eighth 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 26h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 2489-1] minidlna security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 2490-1] x11vnc security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 2501-1] influxdb security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 2511-1] highlight.js security update for one CVE

Unfortunately package slirp has the same version in Stretch and Buster. So I first had to upload slirp/1:1.0.17-11 to unstable, in order to be allowed to fix the CVE in Buster and to finally upload a new version to Stretch. Meanwhile the fix for Buster has been approved by the Release Team and I am waiting for the next point release now.

I also prepared a debdiff for influxdb, which will result in DSA-4823-1 in January.

As there appeared new CVEs for openjpeg2, I did not do an upload yet. This is planned for January now.

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

Debian ELTS

This month was the thirtieth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-341-1 for highlight.js

As well as for LTS, I did not finish work on all CVEs of openjpeg2, so the upload is postponed to January.

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

Unfortunately I also had to give back some hours.

Other stuff

This month I uploaded new upstream versions of:

I fixed one or two bugs in:

I improved packaging of:

Some packages just needed a source upload:

… and there have been even some new packages:

With these uploads I finished the libosmocom- and libctl-transitions.

The Debian Med Advent Calendar was again really successful this year. There was no new record, but with 109, the second most number of bugs has been closed.
