I was assigned 12.3 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 1.45 from last month. I was unwell for much of this month and only worked 6 hours on LTS. I returned 7 hours to the pool and carry over 0.75 hours.
I wrote and sent the DLA for linux 3.2.81-2, and I discussed various handling of various issues on the debian-lts mailing list. Most of my time was spent working on the long backlog of security issues in imagemagick. I hope to complete this and upload a fixed version this month.
I was assigned 14.75 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 0.7 from last month. I worked a total of 14 hours, carrying over 1.45 hours.
I finished preparing and finally uploaded an update for linux (3.2.81-2). This took longer than expected due to the difficulty of reproducing CVE-2016-5696 and verifying the backported fix. I also released an upstream stable update (3.2.82) which will go into the next update in wheezy LTS.
I discussed a few other security updates and issues on the debian-lts mailing list.
I was assigned another 14.7 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 1 from last month. I worked a total of 15 hours, carrying over a fraction of an hour.
I spent another week in the Front Desk role and triaged various new CVEs for wheezy.
I spent the remainder of the time working on the next Linux stable updates (3.2.82 and Debian 3.2.81-2), but didn't release them - that will be done in the next few days.
I was assigned another 15 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 5 from last month. I worked a total of 19 hours, carrying over 1.
I spent a week in the Front Desk role and triaged many new security issues for wheezy.
I prepared the Linux 3.2.81 stable update, sent it out for review and finally released it. I then rebased the wheezy-security branch on top of that and added some later security fixes that were not yet suitable for a kernel.org update. I uploaded to wheezy-security and issued DLA-516-1.
I started working on the next Linux stable updates (3.2.82 and the next wheezy LTS update) and on an update for imagemagick, but haven't uploaded anything for them yet.
I was assigned another 15 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative, but only worked a total of 10 hours. I intend to make up for this in June.
I began preparing the next stable update for Linux 3.2 on kernel.org, but haven't yet sent it out for review. I rebased the wheezy-security branch onto Linux 3.2.80, and added fixes for one more security issue and one data corruption issue affecting aufs.
I started a week in the front desk, triaging new issues for wheezy.
