Debian project funding
Folks from the LTS team, along with members of the Debian Android Tools team and Phil Morrel, have proposed work on the Java build tool, gradle, which is currently blocked due to the need to build with a plugin not available in Debian. The LTS team reviewed the project submission and it has been approved. After approval we’ve created a Request for Bids which is active now.
You’ll hear more about this through official Debian channels, but in the meantime, if you feel you can help with this project, please submit a bid. Thanks!
This September, Freexian set aside 2550 EUR to fund Debian projects.
We’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Learn more about the rationale behind this initiative in this article.
Debian LTS contributors
In September, 15 contributors have been paid to work on Debian LTS, their reports are available:
- Abhijith PA has returned hours and marked themselves inactive, at least for the time being. He did 0h out of 14h, carried over 14h and returned 28h.
- Adrian Bunk did 19.5h (out of 24.75h assigned and 12.75 from August), carrying over 18h to October.
- Anton Gladky did 12h (out of 12h assigned).
- Ben Hutchings did 2h (out of 12.75h assigned and 19.25h from August), thus carrying over 30h to October.
- Chris Lamb did 18h (out of 18h assigned).
- Emilio Pozuelo Monfort did not report back about their work so we assume they did nothing (out of 5.5h assigned plus 74.5h from August), thus is carrying over 80h for October.
- Holger Levsen did 3h (out of 12h assigned) and gave back 9h and carried over 3h.
- Jeremiah Foster worked 10 hours (out of 20h assigned) on LTS work, carrying over 10h.
- Lee Garrett did not report back about their work so we assume they did nothing (out of 24.75h assigned and 23.75 from August), thus is carrying over 48.50h for October.
- Markus Koschany did 43.5h (out of 24.75h assigned and 18.75h from August)
- Neil Williams did 24.5h (out of 24.75h assigned)
- Roberto C. Sánchez did 6h (out of 24.75h assigned and gave back 18.75h)
- Sylvain Beucler did 27h (out of 24.75h assigned).
- Thorsten Alteholz did 24.75h (out of 24.75h assigned).
- Utkarsh Gupta did 24.75h (out of 24.75h assigned) but did not publish his report yet.
- Ola Lundqvist did 2 hours (out of 21h carried over from previous months), and is thus carrying 19h for October.
Evolution of the situation
In September we released 30 DLAs. September was also the second month of Jeremiah coordinating LTS contributors.
Also, we would like say that we are always looking for new contributors to LTS. Please contact Jeremiah if you are interested!
