LTS & ELTS Report for August 2022
In August 2022 I spent 9 hours on Debian LTS.
This was largely spent investigating CVE-2022-29154 for rsync, backporting it, and then realising that it depended on the change in argument parsing behaviour in 3.2.4, so it couldn't be backported without affecting users.
I also completed the kicad upload for LTS, as previously prepared for bullseye-security.
And started on an update to netatalk.
During the month, Freexian sponsored 14 hours of Debian time which I
spent on dh-python, leading to uploading dh-python 5.20220819. This
was mostly bunch of minor bug-fixes, with the addition of some tests.
The bug change was refactoring argument parsing (migrating to
argparse) to allow
-O=-foo style options to be parsed.
