Debian LTS work, December 2017

I was assigned 14 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative, but only worked 6 hours so I carried over 8 hours to January.

I prepared and uploaded an update to the Linux kernel to fix various security issues. I issued DLA-1200-1 for this update. I also prepared another update on the Linux 3.2 longterm stable branch, though most of that work was done while on holiday so I didn't count the hours. I spent some time following the closed mailing list used to coordinate backports of KPTI/KAISER.
