My Debian Activities in October 2022

FTP master

This month I accepted 484 and rejected 55 packages. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 492.

Debian LTS

This was my hundredth month that I did some work for the Debian LTS initiative, started by Raphael Hertzog at Freexian.  Woohoo, There is a party. (yes I am old). Unfortunately there are already 101 completed month listed in the debian-lts-announce archive, so I seem to have counted wrong once. *sigh*, yes I am old.

This month my all in all workload has been 14h.

During that time I uploaded:

  • [DLA 3168-1] openvswitch security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 3167-1] ncurses security update for one CVE
  • [#1020596] bullseye-pu: mod-wsgi/4.7.1-3+deb11u1 upload
  • [graphicsmagick] debdiff for Bullseye sent to security team (update as DLA or via PU?)
  • [graphicsmagick] prepared upload for Buster
  • [libvncserver] debdiff for Buster and Bullseye sent to maintainer (no upload yet :-()

I also started to work on virglrenderer.

Last but not least I took care of NEW packages on security-master.

Debian ELTS

This month was the fifty first ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • [ELA-719-1] graphicsmagick security update of Jessie and Stretch for one CVE
  • [ELA-720-1] bluez security update of Jessie and Stretch for three CVEs
  • marked two CVEs of curl as not-affected for Jessie and Stretch
  • checked that all patches for dpdk need to be backported, unfortunately that was beyond my capabilities

I also started to work on snapd.

Last but not least I finally managed to become familiar with the git workflow and imported several packages to the salsa repository.

Debian Astro

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

I also uploaded a new package pysqm. This software supports the Sky Quality Meters made by Unihedron. I was kindly given an SQM-LU for USB and SQM-LE with network adapter. I plan to put a working Python3 version of the old PySQM software into Debian, package the UDM (Unihedron Device Manager) and finally check the support within Indi.

Debian IoT

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

Debian Mobcom

This month I finished the transition of the Osmocom packages, except
osmo-mgw and osmo-msc seem to have problems. I have no idea how I can solve this, so help is appreciated.
