Debian LTS

This was my fifty ninth month that I did some work for the Debian LTS initiative, started by Raphael Hertzog at Freexian.

I also helped the maintainer of lemonldap-ng to create his DLA 1791-1. Further I created a package for testing bind9 and wpa, but both failed miserably in the wild, so I have to start from scratch here.

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

Debian ELTS

This month was the twelfth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-120-1 of php5 for one CVE

FTP master

This was again a quiet month and I only accepted 70 packages and rejected 11 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 102. As with every release, people still upload new versions of packages to unstable during the full freeze. I always wonder why they do this?
