Monthly report about Debian Long Term Support, June 2021

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

Debian project funding

In June, we put aside 5775 EUR to fund Debian projects for which we’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Learn more about the rationale behind this initiative in this article.

Debian LTS contributors

In June, 12 contributors have been paid to work on Debian LTS, their reports are available:

  • Abhijith PA did 18.0h (out of 14h assigned and 19h from May), thus carrying over 15h to July.
  • Anton Gladky did 12h (out of 12h assigned).
  • Ben Hutchings did 13.25h (out of 14h assigned and 2h from May), thus carrying over 2.75h to July.
  • Chris Lamb did 18h (out of 18h assigned).
  • Emilio Pozuelo Monfort did 29h (out of 40h assigned), thus carrying over 11h to July.
  • Holger Levsen’s work was coordinating/managing the LTS team, he did 3.5h (out of 12h assigned) and gave back 8.5h to the pool.
  • Markus Koschany did 29.75h (out of 30h assigned plus 29.75h from May), thus carrying over 30h for July.
  • Ola Lundqvist did 10h (out of 12h assigned and 4.5h from May), thus carrying over 6.5h to July.
  • Roberto C. Sánchez did 12h (out of 32h assigned), thus carrying over 20h to July.
  • Sylvain Beucler did 30h (out of 30h assigned).
  • Thorsten Alteholz did 30h (out of 30h assigned).
  • Utkarsh Gupta did not report back about their work so we assume they did nothing (out of 40h assigned), thus is carrying over 40h for July.

Evolution of the situation

In June we released 30 DLAs. As already written last month we are looking for a Debian LTS project manager and team coordinator.
Finally, we would like to remark once again that we are constantly looking for new contributors. Please contact Holger if you are interested!

The security tracker currently lists 41 packages with a known CVE and the dla-needed.txt file has 23 packages needing an update.
