My Debian Activities in May 2021

FTP master

This month I accepted 85 and rejected 6 packages. The overall number of packages that got accepted was only 88. Yeah, Debian is frozen but hopefully will unfreeze soon.

Debian LTS

This was my eighty-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 29.75h. During that time I did LTS and normal security uploads of:

  • [DLA 2650-1] exim4 security update for 17 CVEs
  • [DLA 2665-1] ring security update one CVE
  • [DLA 2669-1] libxml2 security update one CVE
  • the fix for tnef/CVE-2019-18849 had been approved and I could do the PU-upload

I also made some progress with gpac and struggle with dozens of issues here.

Last but not least I did some days of frontdesk duties, which for whatever reason was rather time-consuming this month.

Debian ELTS

This month was the thirty-fifth ELTS month.

During my allocated time I uploaded:

  • ELA-420-1 for exim4
  • ELA-435-1 for python2.7
  • ELA-436-1 for libxml2

I also made some progress with python3.4

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

Other stuff

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

Last but not least I adopted gnucobol.

Things never turn out the way you expect, so this month I was only able to accept 38 packages and rejected none. Due to the freeze, the overall number of packages that got accepted was 88.

Debian LTS

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

  • [DLA 2612-1] leptonlib security update for four CVEs

I also prepared debdiffs for unstable and/or buster for leptonlib and libebml, which for one reason or another did not result in an upload yet.

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

Further I sent debdiffs of weechat/stretch, weechat/buster, e2fsprogs/stretch to the corresponding maintainers but got no feedback yet.

As there have been lots of no-dsa-CVEs accumulated for wireshark, I started to work on them but could not upload yet.

Problem with go test

Notice to my future self: in case your packages have problems with go test and things like:

> github.com/go-xorm/core
>    dh_auto_test -O--buildsystem=golang
> 	cd obj-x86_64-linux-gnu && go test -vet=off -v -p 4 github.com/go-xorm/core
> flag provided but not defined: -test.testlogfile

appear, please have a look at this issue on github.

Something broke in golang 1.13 and can be fixed by adding:

var _ = func() bool {
       testing.Init()
       return true
}()

to your tests.
