Debian: Latest Work by Jonathan Carter, Mike Gabriel, Thorsten Alteholz, and Russ Allbery

  • Jonathan Carter: Free Software Activities (2019-08)

    Ah, spring time at last. The last month I caught up a bit with my Debian packaging work after the Buster freeze, release and subsequent DebConf. Still a bit to catch up on (mostly kpmcore and partitionmanager that’s waiting on new kdelibs and a few bugs). Other than that I made two new videos, and I’m busy with renovations at home this week so my home office is packed up and in the garage. I’m hoping that it will be done towards the end of next week, until then I’ll have little screen time for anything that’s not work work.

  • Mike Gabriel: My Work on Debian LTS/ELTS (August 2019)

    In August 2019, I have worked on the Debian LTS project for 24 hours (of 24.75 hours planned) and on the Debian ELTS project for another 2 hours (of 12 hours planned) as a paid contributor.

  • Thorsten Alteholz: My Debian Activities in August 2019

    This month the numbers went up again and I accepted 389 packages and rejected 43. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 460.

  • rra-c-util 8.0

    This is a roll-up of a lot of changes to my utility package for C (and increasingly for Perl). It's been more than a year since the last release, so it's long-overdue.

    Most of the changes in this release are to the Perl test libraries and accompanying tests. Test::RRA now must be imported before Test::More so that it can handle the absence of Test::More (such as on Red Hat systems with perl but not perl-core installed). The is_file_contents function in Test::RRA now handles Windows and other systems without a diff program. And there are more minor improvements to the various tests written in Perl.
