My Debian Activities in November 2021

FTP master

This month I accepted 564 and rejected 93 packages. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 591.

Debian LTS

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

  • [DLA 2820-1] atftp security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 2821-1] axis security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 2822-1] netkit-rsh security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 2825-1] libmodbus security update for two CVEs
  • [#1000408] for libmodbus in Buster
  • [#1000485] for btrbk in Bullseye
  • [#1000486] for btrbk in Buster

I also started to work on pgbouncer to get an update for each release and had to process packages from NEW on security-master.

Further I worked on a script to automatically publish DLAs on the Debian website, that are posted to debian-lts-announce. The script can be found on salsa. It only publishes stuff from people on a whitelist. At the moment it is running on a computer at home. You might run your own copy, or just send me an email to be put on the whitelist as well.

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

Debian ELTS

This month was the forty-first ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-517-1 for atftp
  • ELA-519-1 for qtbase-opensource-src
  • ELA-520-1 for libsdl1.2
  • ELA-521-1 for libmodbus

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

Debian Printing

Unfortunately I did not do as much as I wanted this month. At least I looked at some old bugs and uploaded new upstream versions of …

I hope this will improve in December again. New versions of cups and hplip are on my TODO-list.

Debian Astro

This month I uploaded new versions of …

Other stuff

I improved packaging or fixed bugs of:

My Debian Activities in October 2021

FTP master

This month I accepted 341 and rejected 46 packages. The rejection is as high as last month. I hope everybody is aware that pressing just one key when accepting a package is much faster than writing an explanation why a package has to be rejected. Anyway, the overall number of packages that got accepted was 355.

Debian LTS

This was my eighty-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 28.5h. During that time I did LTS and normal security uploads of:

  • [DLA 2789-1] squashfs-tools security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 2792-1] faad2 security update for seven CVEs

  • [DLA 2800-1] cups security update for one CVE
  • [#998042] for jbig2dec in Buster

I also continued to work on exiv2.

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

Debian ELTS

This month was the fortieth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-498-1 for openssl
  • ELA-501-1 for faad2

Debian Printing

Last but not least I looked at some old bugs and checked whether they could be closed.

Debian Astro

Though being a silent member of Debian Astro for a long time, I am now going to be more active now. Most of the time I will be focused on packages for telescope control, but of course I won’t stay away from other topics.

So I uploaded:

If you know of other missing packages, don’t hesitate to tell me!

Other stuff

On my neverending golang challenge I again uploaded some packages either for NEW or as source upload.

I uploaded new upstream versions of:
