Freexian’s report about Debian Long Term Support, October 2016

A Debian LTS logoLike each month, here comes a report about the work of paid contributors to Debian LTS.

Individual reports

In October, about 175 work hours have been dispatched among 14 paid contributors. Their reports are available:

Evolution of the situation

The number of sponsored hours did not change this month. We still need a couple of supplementary sponsors to reach our objective of funding the equivalent of a full time position.

The security tracker currently lists 34 packages with a known CVE and the dla-needed.txt file 29. The situation improved slightly compared to last month.

Thanks to our sponsors

Freexian’s report about Debian Long Term Support, September 2016

A Debian LTS logoLike each month, here comes a report about the work of paid contributors to Debian LTS.

Individual reports

In September, about 152 work hours have been dispatched among 13 paid contributors. Their reports are available:

  • Balint Reczey did 15 hours (out of 12.25 hours allocated + 7.25 remaining, thus keeping 4.5 extra hours for October).
  • Ben Hutchings did 6 hours (out of 12.3 hours allocated + 1.45 remaining, he gave back 7h and thus keeps 9.75 extra hours for October).
  • Brian May did 12.25 hours.
  • Chris Lamb did 12.75 hours (out of 12.30 hours allocated + 0.45 hours remaining).
  • Emilio Pozuelo Monfort did 1 hour (out of 12.3 hours allocated + 2.95 remaining) and gave back the unused hours.
  • Guido Günther did 6 hours (out of 7h allocated, thus keeping 1 extra hour for October).
  • Hugo Lefeuvre did 12 hours.
  • Jonas Meurer did 8 hours (out of 9 hours allocated, thus keeping 1 extra hour for October).
  • Markus Koschany did 12.25 hours.
  • Ola Lundqvist did 11 hours (out of 12.25 hours assigned thus keeping 1.25 extra hours).
  • Raphaël Hertzog did 12.25 hours.
  • Roberto C. Sanchez did 14 hours (out of 12.25h allocated + 3.75h remaining, thus keeping 2 extra hours).
  • Thorsten Alteholz did 12.25 hours.

Evolution of the situation

The number of sponsored hours reached 172 hours per month thanks to maxcluster GmbH joining as silver sponsor and RHX Srl joining as bronze sponsor.

We only need a couple of supplementary sponsors now to reach our objective of funding the equivalent of a full time position.

The security tracker currently lists 39 packages with a known CVE and the dla-needed.txt file 34. It’s a small bump compared to last month but almost all issues are affected to someone.

Freexian’s report about Debian Long Term Support, August 2016

A Debian LTS logoLike each month, here comes a report about the work of paid contributors to Debian LTS.

Individual reports

In August, 140 work hours have been dispatched among 10 paid contributors. Their reports are available:

  • Balint Reczey did 9.5 hours (out of 14.75 hours allocated + 2 remaining, thus keeping 7.25 extra hours for September).
  • Ben Hutchings did 14 hours (out of 14.75 hours allocated + 0.7 remaining, keeping 1.45 extra hours for September).
  • Brian May did 14.75 hours.
  • Chris Lamb did 15 hours (out of 14.75 hours, thus keeping 0.45 hours for next month).
  • Emilio Pozuelo Monfort did 13.5 hours (out of 14.75 hours allocated + 0.5 remaining, thus keeping 2.95 hours extra hours for September).
  • Guido Günther did 9 hours.
  • Markus Koschany did 14.75 hours.
  • Ola Lundqvist did 15.2 hours (out of 14.5 hours assigned + 0.7 remaining).
  • Roberto C. Sanchez did 11 hours (out of 14.75h allocated, thus keeping 3.75 extra hours for September).
  • Thorsten Alteholz did 14.75 hours.

Evolution of the situation

The number of sponsored hours rised to 167 hours per month thanks to UR Communications BV joining as gold sponsor (funding 1 day of work per month)!

In practice, we never distributed this amount of work per month because some sponsors did not renew in time and some of them might not even be able to renew at all.

The security tracker currently lists 31 packages with a known CVE and the dla-needed.txt file 29. It’s a small bump compared to last month but almost all issues are affected to someone.

Freexian’s report about Debian Long Term Support, July 2016

A Debian LTS logoLike each month, here comes a report about the work of paid contributors to Debian LTS.

Individual reports

In July, 136.6 work hours have been dispatched among 11 paid contributors. Their reports are available:

  • Antoine Beaupré has been allocated 4 hours again but in the end he put back his 8 pending hours in the pool for the next months.
  • Balint Reczey did 18 hours (out of 7 hours allocated + 2 remaining, thus keeping 2 extra hours for August).
  • Ben Hutchings did 15 hours (out of 14.7 hours allocated + 1 remaining, keeping 0.7 extra hour for August).
  • Brian May did 14.7 hours.
  • Chris Lamb did 14 hours (out of 14.7 hours, thus keeping 0.7 hours for next month).

  • Thorsten Alteholz did 14.7 hours.

Evolution of the situation

The number of sponsored hours jumped to 159 hours per month thanks to GitHub joining as our second platinum sponsor (funding 3 days of work per month)! Our funding goal is getting closer but it’s not there yet.

The security tracker currently lists 22 packages with a known CVE and the dla-needed.txt file likewise. That’s a sharp decline compared to last month.
