Debian LTS Work July 2015

This was my third month as a Freexian sponsored LTS contributor. I was assigned 4 hours which was enough for me to release a fix for python-tornado.  This is covered under DLA 279-1.  I also looked at the recent round of security updates for Postfix to see if we should publish an update for postfix 2.7 (which is no longer supported upstream). I haven’t decided for sure since all of the changes are configuration changes that administrators can make on their own and so it’s not clear the risks of breaking working configurations are outweighed on oldoldstable with the benefits of disabling insecure protocols.
