Monthly report about Debian Long Term Support, January 2022

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

Debian project funding

In January we saw a new funded project proposed. The project is meant to bring in a number of changes to the Tryton modules and packages in Debian. Tryton, a full featured, entirely open source business software platform, is supported by its own foundation. You can track the current status of all our funded projects at its dedicated web page.

Folks continue to add to the Grow Your Ideas project page, that’s great.

In January € 2550 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.
