This was my ninth month as a Freexian sponsored LTS contributor. I was assigned 8 hours for the month of January.
My time this month was spent preparing updates for clamav and the associated libclamunrar for squeeze and wheezy. For wheezy, I’ve only helped a little, mostly I worked on squeeze.
This update is more complex than usual because with clamav 0.99 upstream bumped soname and so in addition to the normal case of transitions in unstable, we’ve needed transitions for stable, oldstable, and squeeze-lts. We also try to be careful and maintain higher versions in newer releases, so stable needed to wait for 0.99 in testing, oldstable needed to wait for stable, etc.
Currently 0.99 is in stable proposed updates and I’ve requested that the update for wheezy (oldstable) go forward. Once that’s done, I’ve got squeeze-lts ready to go.
