Monthly report about Debian Long Term Support, June 2022

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

Debian project funding

No any major updates on running projects. Two 1, 2 projects are in the pipeline now. Tryton project is in a review phase. Gradle projects is still fighting in work.

In June, we put aside 2254 EUR to fund Debian projects.

We’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Learn more about the rationale behind this initiative in this article.

Evolution of the situation

In June we released 27 DLAs.

This is a special month, where we have two releases (stretch and jessie) as ELTS and NO release as LTS. Buster is still handled by the security team and will probably be given in LTS hands at the beginning of the August. During this month we are updating the infrastructure, documentation and improve our internal processes to switch to a new release.

Many developers have just returned back from Debconf22, hold in Prizren, Kosovo! Many (E)LTS members could meet face-to-face and discuss some technical and social topics! Also LTS-BoF took place, where the project was introduced (link to video).

Thanks to our sponsors
