My Debian Activities in March 2022

FTP master

This month I accepted 332 and rejected 15 packages. This ratio gives a reason to hope. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 342.

Debian LTS

This was my ninety-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 40h. During that time I did LTS and normal security uploads of:

  • [DLA 2932-1] tiff security update for three CVEs
  • [DLA 2931-1] cyrus-sasl2 security for one CVE
  • [DLA 2966-1] libgc security update for one CVE
  • [#1006493] bullseye-pu: htmldoc debdiff was approved and package uploaded
  • [#1006493] buster-pu: htmldoc debdiff was approved and package uploaded
  • [#1007938] buster-pu: cups/2.2.10-6+deb10u5
  • [#1007938] buster-pu: cups debdiff was approved and package uploaded
  • [#1008577] bullseye-pu: golang-github-russellhaering-goxmldsig/1.1.0-1+deb11u1
  • [#1008578] buster-pu: golang-github-russellhaering-goxmldsig/0.0~git20170911.b7efc62-1+deb10u1
  • [unstable] minidlna security update for one CVE

All my PU bugs for Buster and Bullseye, that accumulated over the last months, were part of the latest point release. So new ones have to be created now :-).

I also continued to work on security support for golang packages. As a result #1008577 and #1008578 were the first real tests with a simple package.

Debian ELTS

This month was the forty-fifth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-573-1 for cyrus-sasl2
  • ELA-589-1 for libgc

Unfortunately uploads have to be done for younger releases first, so I had to withhold some uploads for ELTS. Hopefully they can be done in April. Probably this policy needs to be reconsidered.

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

Debian Printing

This month I uploaded new upstream versions or improved packaging of:

In order to make the Debian Edu team happy, I uploaded a new version of cups-filters with an adapted Apparmor-file to Unstable and Bullseye.

Debian Astro

Other stuff

In order to avoid an AUTORM of some Osmocom packages, I also had to NMU:
