Like each month, have a look at the work funded by Freexian’s Debian LTS offering.
Debian project funding
In May, we again put aside 2100 EUR to fund Debian projects. There was no proposals for new projects received, thus we’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Please do not hesitate to submit a proposal, if there is a project that could benefit from the funding!
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 May, 12 contributors have been paid to work on Debian LTS, their reports are available:
- Abhijith PA did 7.0h (out of 14h assigned and 12h from April), thus carrying over 19h to June.
- Anton Gladky did 12h (out of 12h assigned).
- Ben Hutchings did 16h (out of 13.5h assigned plus 4.5h from April), thus is carrying over 2h for June.
- Chris Lamb did 18h (out of 18h assigned).
- Holger Levsen‘s work was coordinating/managing the LTS team, he did 5.5h and gave back 6.5h to the pool.
- Markus Koschany did 15h (out of 29.75h assigned and 15h from April), thus carrying over 29.75h to June.

Evolution of the situation
In May we released 33 DLAs and mostly skipped our public IRC meeting and the end of the month. In June we’ll have another team meeting using video as lined out on our LTS meeting page.
Also, two months ago we announced that Holger would step back from his coordinator role and today we are announcing that he is back for the time being, until a new coordinator is found.
Finally, we would like to remark once again that we are constantly looking for new contributors. Please contact Holger if you are interested!
