Another month, another statistic. This month I marked 90 packages for accept and rejected 20 of them.
For some reasons this month I got assigned an exceptional high workload of 26.5h and I spent these hours to upload new versions of:
- [DLA 188-1] arj security update
- [DLA 189-1] libgd2 security update
- [DLA 190-1] libgcrypt11 security update
- [DLA 191-1] checkpw security update
- [DLA 193-1] chrony security update
- [DLA 195-1] libtasn1-3 security update
- [DLA 200-1] ruby1.9.1 security update
- [DLA 205-1] ppp security update
- [DLA 211-1] curl security update
- [DLA 212-1] php5 security update
[DLA 191-1] and [DLA 193-1] have been “only” sponsored uploads, where Markus Koschany and Joachim Wiedorn prepared the patches.
Due to the large number of hours I was able to make a php5 upload which resolves several issues that have been marked as no-dsa before. At this point I would like to thank Jan Ingvoldstad for his thorough tests of the package before I did the final upload.
The next big adventure will be ruby1.9.1. Unfortunately my workload in May is (hopefully) exceptional low, so I am not sure whether I can finish this by the end of that month.
I also uploaded [DLA 206-1] python-django-markupfield security update although no LTS sponsor indicated any interest in this package.
While searching for another bug, I stumbled upon #128818. It is a whishlist bug for apt to support rsync while downloading package metadata. It might not be useful for the entire Packages-file. But wouldn’t it make sense if each package gets its own file and one has to download only stuff that has really changed?
Again, thanks alot to all donors. I really appreciate this and hope that everybody is pleased with my commitment. Don’t hesitate to make suggestions for improvements.
