My Debian Activities in February 2023

FTP master

This month I accepted 284 and rejected 49 packages. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 286.

I love this calm and peaceful time now within the Debian project, when everybody only cares for RC bugs and NEW does not grow.

Debian LTS

This was my hundred-fourth 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 8h.

During that time I uploaded:

  • [DLA 3310-1] xorg-server security update for one CVE

As I added all missing ELA uploads to the git repository I also had a look at package-operations and added stuff to make my life a bit easier.

Debian ELTS

This month was the fifty fifth ELTS month.

  • [ELA-794-1] xorg-server security update of Jessie and Stretch for one CVE

I also made myself familiar with the mandatory git workflow and committed all my packages of this years ELA to the corresponding repository.

Debian Astro

This month I uploaded improved packages or new versions of:

Debian Printing

This month I uploaded new versions or improved packages of:

As ippsample does not build on i386, I filed a RM bug for this architecture. Maybe in a later upstream release it will be available again on all architectures.

I could also close lots of bugs that happen to be fixed upstream, but have not been closed with the upload of the new version.

Parts of this work is generously funded by Freexian!

Other stuff

This month I uploaded improved packages of:

The upload of feynmf could only happen due to the help of several people (please see #1029439). Thanks a lot!
