Import git repository from alioth-archive.debian.org to salsa.debian.org

All repositories that had not been migrated before the shutdown of alioth are still available at the alioth archive. There you can find a compressed tarfile of the bare repository.

So to move such a repository to salsa …

  1. … create the new repository on salsa
  2. … download your file from alioth-archive
    wget https://alioth-archive.debian.org/git/debian-iot/duktape.git.tar.xz

  3. … unpack it
    tar -Jxf duktape.git.tar.xz

  4. … cd to your bare repository
    cd duktape.git

  5. … push your repository to salsa
    git push --mirror git@salsa.debian.org:debian-iot-team/duktape.git

Voila, your new repository is ready to be used.

My Debian Activities in June 2018

FTP master

This month I accepted 166 packages and rejected only 7 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 216.

Debian LTS

This was my forty 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 23.75h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1404-1] lava-server security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1403-1] zendframework security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1409-1] mosquitto security update for two CVE
  • [DLA 1408-1] simplesamlphp security update for two CVE

I also prepared a test package for slurm-llnl but got no feadback yet *hint* *hint*.

This month has been the end of Wheezy LTS and the beginning of Jessie LTS. After asking Ansgar, I did the reconfiguration of the upload queues on seger to remove the embargoed queue for Jessie and reduce the number of supported architectures.

Further I started to work on opencv.

Unfortunately the normal locking mechanism for work on packages by claiming the package in dla-needed.txt did not really work during the transition. As a result I worked on libidn and mercurial parallel to others. There seems to be room for improvement for the next transition.

Last but not least I did one week of frontdesk duties.

Debian ELTS

This month was the first ELTS month.

During my allocated time I made the first CVE triage in my week of frontdesk duties, extended the check-syntax part in the ELTS security tracker and uploaded:

  • ELA-3-1 for file
  • ELA-4-1 for openssl

Other stuff

During June I continued the libosmocore transition but could not finish it. I hope I can upload all missing packages in July.

Further I continued to sponsor some glewlwyd packages for Nicolas Mora.

The DOPOM package for this month was dvbstream.

I also upload a new upstream version of …

My Debian Activities in May 2018

FTP master

This month I accepted 304 packages and rejected 20 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 420.

Debian LTS

This was my forty seventh 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 24.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

    [DLA 1387-1] cups security update for one CVE
    [DLA 1388-1] wireshark security update for 9 CVEs

I continued to work on the bunch of wireshark CVEs and sorted all out that did not affect Jessie or Stretch. At the end I sent my dediff with patches for 20 Jessie CVEs and 38 CVES for Stretch to Moritz so that he could compare them with his own work. Unfortunately he didn’t use all of them.

The CVEs for krb5 were marked as no-dsa by the security team, so there was no upload for Wheezy. Building the package for cups was a bit annoying as the test suite didn’t want to run in the beginning.

I also tested the apache2 package from Roberto twice and let the package do a second round before the final upload.

Last but not least I did a week of frontdesk duties and prepared my new working environment for Jessie LTS and Wheezy ELTS.

Other stuff

During May I did uploads of …

  • libmatthew-java to fix a FTBFS with Java 9 due to a disappearing javah. In the end it resulted in a new upstream version.

I also prepared the next libosmocore transistion by uploading several osmocom packages to experimental. This has to continue in June.

Further I sponsored some glewlwyd packages for Nicolas Mora. He is right on his way to become a Debian Maintainer.

Last but not least I uploaded the new package libterm-readline-ttytter-per, which is needed to bring readline functionality to oysttyer, a command line twitter client.

My Debian Activities in April 2018

FTP master

This month I accepted 145 packages and rejected 5 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 260.

Debian LTS

This was my forty sixth 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 16.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

    [DLA 1353-1] wireshark security update for 12 CVEs
    [DLA 1364-1] openslp-dfsg security update for one CVE
    [DLA 1367-1] slurm-llnl security update for one CVE

I also started to work on the next bunch of wireshark CVEs and I intend to upload packages for Jessie and Stretch as well.
Other packages I started are krb5 and cups.

Last but not least I did a week of frontdesk duties, where I check lots of CVEs for their impact on Wheezy.

Other stuff

During April I did uploads of …

  • pescetti to fix a FTBFS with Java 9 due to -source/-target only
  • salliere to fix a FTBFS with Java 9 due to -source/-target only
  • libb64 to fix a FTCBFS
  • chktex to fix a FTBFS with TeX Live 2018

Thanks to all the people who sent patches!

I also finished the libosmocore transistion this month by uploading the following osmocom packages to unstable and alongside fixing some bugs that our tireless QA tools detected:

Further I uploaded osmo-fl2k already two days after release. It is a nice software that enables an USB-VGA converter to be used as transmitter for all kind of signals. Of course just use it in a shielded room!

As Nicolas Mora, the upstream author of the oauth2 server glewlwyd, wanted to be more involved in Debian packaging, I sponsored some of his first packages. They are all new versions of his software:

I also uploaded a new upstream version of dateutils.

Last but not least I worked on some apcupsd bugs and I am down to 16 bugs now.

My Debian Activities in March 2018

FTP master

This month I accepted 252 packages and rejected 23 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 308.

I also took care of #890944.

Debian LTS

This was my forty fifth 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 23.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

    [DLA 1313-1] isc-dhcp security update for two CVEs
    [DLA 1312-1] libvorbisidec security update for one CVE
    [DLA 1333-1] dovecot security update for three CVEs
    [DLA 1334-1] mosquitto security update two CVEs
    [DSA 4152-1] mupdf security update for two Jessie CVEs and two Stretch CVEs

I also prepared a test package for wireshark, fixing 12 CVEs. I am still waiting for feedback :-).

The issues for mupdf did not affect Wheezy, so there has been no DLA. Instead the security team accepted my debdiff for Jessie and Stretch and published a DSA. Thanks to Luciano for doing this.
As it turned out, the patch I found for icu last month had been the correct one. But as it did not affect Wheezy, there has been no DLA as well.

Last but not least I did one week of frontdesk duties.

Other stuff

During march I did uploads of …

  • libctl to fix a FTBFS during binary-indep-only build

I also moved all oauth2 related packages as well as cd5 to salsa.

Last but not least I took care of some old bugs in apcupsd that no longer seem to be relevant.

My Debian Activities in February 2018

FTP master

This month everything came back to normal and I accepted 272 packages and rejected 30 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 423.

Debian LTS

This was my forty 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 23.75h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1279-1] clamav security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 1286-1] quagga security update for three CVEs
  • [DLA 1290-1] libvpx security update for one CVE
  • [DSA 4125-1] wavpack security update for three Jessie CVEs and three Stretch CVEs

The issues for wavpack did not affect Wheezy, so there has been no DLA. Instead the security team accepted my debdiff for Jessie and Stretch and published a DSA. Thanks to Sebastien for doing this.
I also started to work on a fix for ICU. Unfortunately Moritz did not agree with me on the correct patch for this. As upstream did not respond to my query yet, I did not do an upload.
I also did not finish my work on opencv, I am still searching for the correct C++ template. On the other hand I finished work on 12 of 22 CVEs for wireshark. The rest will be done in March.

Other stuff

During February I uploaded new upstream versions of …

I also moved all alljoyn packages as well as a56 to salsa.

My Debian Activities in January 2018

FTP master

This month I was distracted from NEW by private stuff, so I only accepted 141 packages and rejected 4 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 361.

Almost two years ago Moritz filed #817286. After some time of inactivity, this bug draw CIP’s attention. Civil Infrastructure Platform is a project under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation. Their basic goal is to provide security support for a very long time (10 years for software and 15 years for the kernel).

As this bugs meets one of their goals, they would like to support Debian and are going to sponsor my work on this bug. So hopefully in the near future staging repositories will be available in Debian.

Debian LTS

This was my forty 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 18.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1235-1] opencv security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 1252-1] couchdb security update for two CVEs
  • [DLA 1255-1] bind9 security update one CVE
  • [DLA 1258-1] wireshark security update for three CVEs
  • [DSA 4101-1] wireshark security update for three Jessie CVEs and three Stretch CVEs
  • [DLA 1263-1] curl security update one CVE

Unfortunately my debdiffs for opencv have not yet been processed by the security team. But as I also started to work on another round of CVEs for opencv, there will be another chance …

Last but not least I did one week of frontdesk duties.

Other stuff

During January I uploaded new upstream versions of …

My Debian Activities in December 2017

FTP master

This month I accepted 222 packages and rejected 39 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 348.

According to the statistic I now passed the mark of 12000 accepted packages.

Debian LTS

This was my forty second 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 14h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1211-1] libxml2 security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1213-1] openafs security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1218-1] rsync security update for three CVEs
  • [DLA 1226-1] wireshark security update for four CVEs

I also started to work on opencv.

I also did uploads of …

  • libosmocore to reintroduce the correct version of the library
  • gnupg-pkcs11-scd to finally depend on libssl-dev and libgcrypt20-dev
  • openbsc to fix a bug with libdbi
  • libsmpp34 to move the package to debian-mobcom
  • osmo-mgw to introduce the package to Debian
  • osmo-pcu to introduce the package to Debian
  • osmo-hlr to introduce the package to Debian
  • osmo-libasn1c to introduce the package to Debian
  • osmo-ggsn to introduce the package to Debian
  • libmatthew-java to fix a bug with java9 (thanks to Markus Koschany for the patch)

I also sponsored …

  • printrun, which really is a new upstream version!

My Debian Activities in November 2017

FTP master

As you might have read elsewhere, I am no longer an FTP assistant. I am very delighted about my new delegation as FTP master.

So this month I almost doubled the number of accepted packages to 385 packages and rejected 60 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 448.

Debian LTS

This was my forty first 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 13h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1188-1] libxml2 security update one CVE
  • [DLA 1191-1] python-werkzeug security update one CVE
  • [DLA 1192-1] libofx security update two CVEs
  • [DLA 1195-1] curl security update one CVE
  • [DLA 1194-1] libxml2 security update two CVEs

I also took care of an rsync issue and continued to work on wireshark.

Other stuff

During November I uploaded new upstream versions of …

I also did uploads of …

  • openoverlayrouter to change the source package Section: and fix some problems in Ubuntu
  • duktape to not only provide a shared library but also a pkg-config file
  • astronomical-almanac to make Helmut happy and fix a FTCBFS where he also provided the patch

Last month I wrote about apcupsd as the DOPOM of October. Unfortunately in November was the next power outage due to some malfunction in a transformer station. I never would have guessed that such a malfunction can do so much harm within the power grid. Anyway, the power was back after 31 minutes and my batteries would have lasted 34 minutes before turning off all computer. At least my spec was correct :-).

The DOPOM for this month has been dateutils.

As it is again this time of the year, I would also like to draw some attention to the Debian Med Advent Calendar. Like the past years, the Debian Med team starts a bug squashing event from the December 1st to 24th. Every bug that is closed will be registered in the calendar. So instead of taking something from the calendar, this special one will be filled and at Christmas hopefully every Debian Med related bug is closed. Don’t hestitate, start to squash :-).

Last but not least I sponsored the upload of evqueue-core.

My Debian Activities in September 2017

FTP assistant

This month almost the same numbers as last month appeared in the statistics. I accepted 213 packages and rejected 15 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was 425.

Debian LTS

This was my thirty-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 15.75h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:

  • [DLA 1109-1] libraw security update for one CVE
  • [DLA 1117-1] opencv security update for 13 CVEs

I also took care of libstrusts1.2-java and marked all CVEs as not-affected and I marked all CVEs for jasper as no-dsa. I also started to work on sam2p.

Just as I wanted to upload a new version of libofx, a new CVE was discovered that was not closed in time. I tried to find a patch on my own but had difficulties in reproducing this issue.

Other stuff

This month I made myself familiar with glewlwyd and according to upstream, the Debian packages work out-of-the box. However upstream does not stop working on that software, so I uploaded new versions of hoel, ulfius and glewlwyd.

As libjwt needs libb64, which was orphanded, I used it as DOPOM and adopted it.

Does anybody still know the Mayhem-bugs? I could close one by uploading an updated version of siggen.

I also went through my packages and looked for patches that piled up in the BTS. As a result i uploaded updated versions of radlib, te923con, node-starttls, harminv and uucp.

New upstream versions of openoverlayrouter and fasttree also made it into the archive.

Last but not least I moved several packages to the debian-mobcom group.
