Monthly report about Debian Long Term Support, April 2021

Like each month, have a look at the work funded by Freexian’s Debian LTS offering.

Debian project funding

In April, we put aside 5775 EUR to fund Debian projects. There was no proposals for new projects received, thus we’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Please do not hesitate to submit a proposal, if there is a project that could benefit from the funding!

Debian LTS contributors

In April, 11 contributors have been paid to work on Debian LTS, their reports are available:
