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.
