Debian LTS work, April 2020

I was assigned 20 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative, and carried over 8.5 hours from March. I worked 26 hours this month, so I will carry over 2.5 hours to May.

I sent a (belated) request for testing an update of the linux package to 3.16.82. I then prepared and, after review, released Linux 3.16.83, including a large number of security fixes. I rebased the linux package onto that and will soon send out a request for testing. I also spent some time working on a still-embargoed security issue.

I did not spend signficant time on any other LTS activities this month, and unfortunately missed the contributor meeting.
