Monthly report about Debian Long Term Support, November 2021

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

Debian project funding

  • Our project funding work continues with an active bid on the work of packaging a recent gradle in Debian. This month the bidder has been estimating the scope of the entire project.
  • The Grow Your Ideas project page also has some ambitious initiatives that may evolve into a funded project. The project ideas on that page range from a new wiki for Debian, a more efficient reimbursement process, and the implementation of PPAs for Debian.
  • In November € 2625 was put aside to fund Debian projects.

We continue to looking forward to hearing about Debian project proposals from various Debian stakeholders. This month has seen work on a survey that will go out to Debian Developers to gather feedback on what they think should be the priorities for funding in the project.

Learn more about the rationale behind this initiative in this article.
