My Free Software Activities in July 2016

Welcome to gambaru.de. Here is my monthly report that covers what I have been doing for Debian.

Debian Android

Debian Games

  • This month GCC-6 bugs became release critical. I fixed and triaged those kind of bugs in games like supertransball2, berusky2, freeorion, bloboats, armagetronad and megaglest.
  • I packaged new upstream releases of scorched3d, bzflag, spring, springlobby, freeorion, freeciv and extremetuxracer.
  • Freeciv, one of the best strategy games ever by the way, also got a new binary package freeciv-client-gtk3. This package will eventually become the new default client to play the game in the future. You are welcome to test it.
  • I packaged a new upstream release of adonthell and adonthell-data. This game is built with Python 3 and SDL 2 now and also uses the latest version of swig to generate its sources. We will probably see only one other future upstream release of adonthell because the main developer has decided to move on after more than 15 years of development.
  • I fixed another RC bug in minetest, updated whichwayisup for this release cycle and moved the package to Git.

Debian Java

Debian LTS

This was my sixth month as a paid contributor and I have been paid to work 14,7 hours on Debian LTS. In that time I did the following:

  • DLA-554-1. I spent most of the time this month on completing my work on libarchive. I issued DLA-554-1 and fixed 18 CVE plus another issue which was later assigned CVE-2016-6250.
  • DLA-555-1. Issued a security update for python-django fixing 1 CVE.
  • DLA-561-1. Issued a security update for uclibc fixing 3 CVE.
  • DLA-562-1. Issued a security update for gosa fixing 1 CVE. I could triage another open CVE as not-affected after confirming that the issue had already been fixed two years ago.
  • DLA-568-1. Issued a security update for wordpress fixing 6 CVE. I decided to go ahead with this update because I could not find any regressions. Unfortunately this wasn’t true for my intended fix for CVE-2015-8834. The database upgrade did not succeed hence I decided to postpone the fix for CVE-2015-8834 until we can narrow down the issue.
  • DLA-576-1. Issued a security update for libdbd-mysql-perl fixing 2 CVE.
  • From 04. July to 10. July I was in charge of our LTS frontdesk. I triaged CVEs in librsvg, bind9, trn, pdns and drupal7 and answered questions on the debian-lts mailing list.

Misc and QA

  • I fixed another GCC-6 bug in wbar, a light and fast launch bar.
  • Childsplay and gvrng were orphaned last month. I updated both of them, fixed the RC-bug in childsplay (non-free font) and moved the packages to the Debian QA Group.
