Here’s my (nineteenth) monthly update about the activities I’ve done in the F/L/OSS world.

Debian

This was my 28th month of active contributing to Debian . I became a DM in late March 2019 and a DD on Christmas ‘19! \o/

Crazy month, as always. Lots of things happening and lots of moving parts.
Now that I am working on Ubuntu-full time, I barely get much time to do any extra stuff. Then the massive COVID wave that has plunged India had made this month further crazier. More on that later, maybe. IDK.

Anyway, I did some Debian stuff, thanks to Salzburg BSP (more down below). I worked on the following stuff:

Uploads and bug fixes:

Other $things:

  • Mentoring for newcomers and assisting people in BSP.
  • Moderation of -project mailing list.

Salzburg BSP 2021

This was my first virtual BSP and the first BSP in Salzburg and it was absolutely amazing!
Many kudos to Bernd Zeimetz for organizing it so smoothly and wonderfully, for real! \o/

We had a bunch of amazing sessions, besides hacking, of course, like:

  • yoga,
  • sports,
  • games, and
  • datacenter tour -> which was super!

We also had lots of things happening at #debian-bsp-2021-szg and did a lot of work.
Whilst everything we did is available on the pad , I work on the following things:

  • [deki/utkarsh]: CVE-2021-28421/fluidsynth (sid); cf: #987168/#987471.
  • [deki/utkarsh]: CVE-2021-28421/fluidsynth (buster); cf: #987168/#987494.
  • [utkarsh]: 18 CVEs for jackson-databind (buster); cf: #987489.
  • [utkarsh]: fix for ruby-librarian/#987113 (unblock request: #987501).
  • [utkarsh]: 17 CVEs for jackson-databind (stretch); LTS upload.
  • [utkarsh]: CVE-2020-12460/opendmarc (stretch); LTS upload.
  • [utkarsh]: CVE-2020-12460/opendmarc (buster); cf: #987531.

And finally, we clicked a picture! \o/


Debian (E)LTS

debian-lts-small.png

Debian Long Term Support (LTS) is a project to extend the lifetime of all Debian stable releases to (at least) 5 years. Debian LTS is not handled by the Debian security team, but by a separate group of volunteers and companies interested in making it a success.

And Debian Extended LTS (ELTS) is its sister project, extending support to the Jessie release (+2 years after LTS support).

This was my nineteenth month as a Debian LTS and tenth month as a Debian ELTS paid contributor.
I was assigned 60.00 hours for LTS and 60.00 hours for ELTS and worked on the following things:
