Monthly report about Debian Long Term Support, July 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 July, we put aside 2389 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 July, we have released 3 DLAs. July was the period, when the Debian Stretch had already ELTS status, but Debian Buster was still in the hands of security team. Many member of LTS used this time to update internal infrastructure, documentation and some internal tickets. Now we are ready to take the next release in our hands: Buster!
