Well done everybody who participated!
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.
This month my all in all workload has been 13h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:
I also took care of an rsync issue and continued to work on wireshark.
During November I uploaded new upstream versions of …
I also did uploads of …
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.
Again, this month almost the same numbers as last month appeared in the statistics. I accepted 214 packages and rejected 22 uploads. The overall number of packages that got accepted this month was only 339.
This month my all in all workload has been 20.75h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:
I also took care of radare2 twice and marked all four CVEs as not-affected for Wheezy and Jessie. As nobody else wanted to address the issues in wireshark yet, I now started to work on this package.
Last but not least I did one week of frontdesk duties.
During October I took care of some bugs and at one go uploaded new upstream versions of hoel and duktape (this had to be done twice as I introduced an new bug with the first upload :-(). I only fixed bugs in glewlwyd and smstools. This month I also sponsored an upload of printrun.
After about ten years of living without any power outage, some construction worker decided to cut a cable near my place. Unfortunately one of my computers used for recording TV shows did not boot after the cable had been repaired and I had to switch some timers to other boxes. All in all this was too much stress and I purchased some USVs from APC. As apcupsd was orphaned, I took the opportunity to adopt it as DOPOM for this month.
My license pasting project now contains 31 license templates for your debian/copyright. The list of available texts can be obtained with:
The license text itself is available under the given links, for example with
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.
This month my all in all workload has been 15.75h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:
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.
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.
Does anybody still know the Mayhem-bugs? I could close one by uploading an updated version of siggen.
Last but not least I moved several packages to the debian-mobcom group.
This month I accepted 217 packages and rejected 16 uploads. Though this might seem to be a low number this month, I am very pleased about the total number of packages that have been accepted: 558.
This month my all in all workload has been 20.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:
I also did the upload and sent the DLA for [DLA 1061-1] newsbeuter security update
Last but not least I also spent some time for frontdesk duties.
As announced last month I finished uploading all dependencies of glewlwyd and now we have an oauth2 server available in Debian. This month I am trying to really use it and will tell you about my experiences.
I also uploaded a new version of duktape and now try to also provide a library that can be used in other packages.
Last but not least my DOPOM of this month has been oysttyer. Actually it is a new package, but as ttytter has been abandonded upstream, this is the replacement. It is a fork so you should only get a new authorization key and simply use it as ttytter before.
This month I am back to normal numbers and accepted 319 packages. I also kept the promise from last month and rejected 26 uploads.
This month my all in all workload went up to 23.5h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:
I could also remove libtorrent-rasterbar and pspp from dla-needed.txt as the affected code was not in the Wheezy version or it was just a simple bug.
Last but not least I also had a few days of frontdesk duties.
This month I uploaded a new version of entropybroker with a revised set of systemd service files. At the moment there is public instance of entropybroker running at eb.debian.net. Its entropy is fed by several Entropy Keys made by Simtec Electronics. Though it is public, it is not yet anonymous, so if you need some entropy please drop me a line. At the moment there are two consumers, but the buffers are still filled.
Last but not least my DOPOM of this month has been ptunnel.
This month I marked 100 packages for accept and rejected zero packages. I promise, I will reject more in July!
This month my all in all workload went down again to 16h. During that time I did LTS uploads of:
I also tested the proposed apache2 package prepared by Roberto and started to work on a new bind9 upload
Last but not least I had five days of frontdesk duties.
This month was filled with updating lots of machines to Stretch. Everything went fine, so thanks a lot to everybody involved in that release.
Nevertheless I also did a DOPOM upload and now take care of otpw. Luckily most of the accumulated bugs already contained a patch, so that I just had to upload a new version and close them.
This month I only marked 39 packages for accept and rejected 5 packages.
This month my all in all workload has been 27.25h. During that time I did LTS uploads or prepared one for Jessie/Sid:
For [DLA 948-1] dropbear and [DLA 958-1] libonig I only did the LTS bookkeeping and sent the DLA.
The icu upload would not have been possible without the help of Roberto.
I also tried to work on jasper, libxml2, libytnef and swftools but unfortunately all upstreams did not finish their respective patches this month, so maybe there will be an upload in June.
As a prerequisite of wview I uploaded radlib. Unfortunately I could not do anything for wview, so work on this has to be postponed. Another new package is te923con, which I hope is able to read data from my weather station.
Last but no least I fixed an RC bug in alljoyn-services-1504.
This month I marked 72 packages for accept and sent one email to a maintainer asking questions. The number of rejections went down to 15. I would name that a good level again.
As others reduced their workload for this month, my all in all workload has been 23.75h. During that time I did uploads of
In addition I had one week of frontdesk duties.
I also started to work on icu and bind9. The patches for icu applied fine but the corresponding test did not work but stopped somewhere in the middle!? I am open for any suggestions why this could happen.
This month I marked 111 packages for accept and sent four emails to maintainers asking questions. The bad number of the month are the 41 packages I had to reject. This rejection rate was the worst of all my NEW-months.
May I ask everybody to pay a bit more attention before uploading/sponsoring a package?
This month my all in all workload has been 14.75h. During that time I did uploads of
I also took care of radare and marked all CVEs as not-affected in Wheezy. My next package on the list will be qbittorrent.
I uploaded a new version of entropybroker to fix a bug with the handling of return codes of ppoll. This version will also make it to Stretch. The same happens with a bug in alljoyn-services-1509. I don’t know why everybody talks about unblock-bugs that need to be filed!? The release team was always faster in granting the unblock than me in filing the corresponding bug.
As my DOPOM for this month I adopted httperf, took care of some bugs and sent patches upstream.
I also created a new project on Alioth that is called debian-mobcom (Alioth page), which shall be a place for all packages concerning mobile communication on the network part. I only uploaded libosmocore to experimental yet, so the package list is rather short.
