Debian LTS work, August 2016

I was assigned 14.75 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 0.7 from last month. I worked a total of 14 hours, carrying over 1.45 hours.

I finished preparing and finally uploaded an update for linux (3.2.81-2). This took longer than expected due to the difficulty of reproducing CVE-2016-5696 and verifying the backported fix. I also released an upstream stable update (3.2.82) which will go into the next update in wheezy LTS.

I discussed a few other security updates and issues on the debian-lts mailing list.
