Here’s my (forty-third) monthly but brief update about the activities I’ve done in the F/L/OSS world.
There’s a bunch of things I do, both, technical and non-technical. Here are the things I did this month:
- Moderation of -project mailing list.
- Mentoring for newcomers.
- Reviewing packages from other fellow contributors.
- Some tiny bits of DebConf Bursary team work, attending meetings, et al.
A huge thanks to Freexian for sponsoring my Debian work.
I mostly worked on different things, I guess.
I was too lazy to maintain a list of things I worked on so there’s no concrete list atm. Maybe I’ll get back to this section later or will start to list stuff from the fall, as I was doing before. :D
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 stretch and jessie release (+2 years after LTS support).
This was my forty-third month as a Debian LTS and thirty-fourth month as a Debian ELTS paid contributor.
I worked for 3.5 hours for LTS and 0 hours for ELTS.
- Helped Scarlett with their uploads and with general questions.
- Some work and progress on ruby-rails-html-sanitizer.
- LTS package claim traiges.
Other (E)LTS Work:
- Triaged ruby-loofah and ruby-rails-html-sanitizer.
- Helped and assisted fellow Freexian contributors (LTS/ELTS/internally).
- Answered questions (& discussions) on IRC (#debian-lts and #debian-elts) and Matrix.
- Participated and helped fellow members with their queries via private mail and chat.
- General and other discussions on LTS private and public mailing list.
- Attended the monthly LTS meeting.
Until next time.
:wq for today.
