This month I have been paid to work 13 hours on Debian Long Term Support (LTS). In that time I did the following:
- redis — Addressing CVE-2015-8080, a buffer-overflow security issue.
- python-django — Uploading the latest RC release to experimental.
- strip-nondeterminism — Disable stripping Mono binaries as it is was too aggressive preventing some package installs.
- gunicorn — Correct Python interpreter path references in gunicorn3-debian.
- python-redis — New upstream release.
- ispell-lt — Making the build reproducible.
- dh-python: Pass --force to setup.py install to avoid non-determinstic shebangs and dependencies. Worth a read.
- cython: Please make the generated output reproducible
- haskell-devscripts: Should refuse to create an empty documentation packages
- debootstrap: Remove duplicate keep_debootstrap_dir definition
- gettext: Please respect SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH when generating changelog entries
- python-setuptools: Make the generated requires.txt files reproducible
- haskell-devscripts: Don't print a warning if there are no -doc package Recommends
- haskell-devscripts: Print status messages when generating Haddock documentation
- rasdaemon: Missing Build-Depends on dh-autoreconf
- retweet: Missing Build-Depends on python3-setuptools
