Every month we review the work funded by Freexian’s Debian LTS offering. Please find the report for December below.
Debian project funding
- The gradle packaging proposal work estimation is now complete. The next steps for this project is regular packaging and engineering work with regular reports.
- In December € 2175 was put aside to fund Debian projects.
The work on the Debian developer survey has resulted in an initial draft which has been reviewed by paid LTS contributors. The next steps are wider review from the Debian project. Expect something soon on firstname.lastname@example.org…
