Debian LTS work, May 2017

I was assigned 15 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 3 hours. I worked 13 hours and will carry over 5 hours.

I prepared a security update for sudo and issued DLA-970-1. I backported several security fixes for the Linux kernel, but have not yet uploaded a new version. I also continued catching up with the backlog of fixes for the Linux 3.2 longterm stable branch.

Debian LTS work, February 2017

I was assigned 13 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 15.25 from January. I worked 19 hours and have returned the remaining 9.25 hours to the general pool.

I prepared a security update for the Linux kernel and issued DLA-833-1. However, I spent most of my time catching up with a backlog of fixes for the Linux 3.2 longterm stable branch. I issued two stable updates (3.2.85, 3.2.86).

Debian LTS work, January 2017

I was assigned 12.75 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 5.5 from December. I worked only 3 hours, so I carry over 15.25 hours - but I will probably give up some of those to the general pool.

I spent some time finishing off the linux security update mentioned in my December entry. I also backported the current version of wireless-regdb - not a security update, but an important one anyway - and issued DLA 785-1.
