Special shoutout to Reedy for coordinating and putting out today's release.
The #QubesOS survey results are out!
Very excited that #Debian is making a 10k USD donation to fund further PeerTube development!
"We hope this unconventional gesture from the Debian project will help us make this year somewhat less terrible and give us, and thus humanity, better Free Software tooling to approach the future."
The latest #MediaWiki security release is now available in #Debian https://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/2020/msg00174.html
I also updated the packages in my PPA as well.
The newest stable release, 1.35, should be ready for unstable later today or tomorrow.
Happy 27th birthday #Debian! Proud to contribute to and run the free software, universal operating system that's just slightly older than me!
Roughly 3 years since I started working on it, @kiwix is set to reenter #debian pending ftp-master review! https://ftp-master.debian.org/new/kiwix_2.0.4-1.html
Proper blog post to follow if/once it's accepted.
Latest #MediaWiki security release is in #Debian unstable now: https://tracker.debian.org/news/1155620/accepted-mediawiki-11318-1-source-into-unstable/
We're not planning to issue a security update for this given that it's not exploitable using the set of extensions available in Debian. It'll get bundled with the next one...
The latest #MediaWiki security update has hit #Debian - https://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/2020/msg00053.html
Only buster users need to update as stretch did not contain the vulnerable code (yay?).
There's a new #MediaWiki security release out today. 11 security issues in total, plus plenty of bug fixes.
Updated #Debian packages will be available shortly for stretch, and buster. I've already updated sid/unstable and my Ubuntu PPA: https://launchpad.net/~legoktm/+archive/ubuntu/mediawiki-lts
This is the official end of upstream support for the 1.27.x LTS, but I'll be backporting patches for the entire lifetime of stretch. More details to come.
I posted most of my poolcounter #Debian packaging work: https://salsa.debian.org/mediawiki-team/poolcounter
There's one remaining issue with the makefile trying to build poolcounterd twice that should get fixed upstream: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/services/poolcounter/+/463700
The #MediaWiki security update has been pushed to #Debian stable after a few hiccups (thanks Moritz!): https://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/2018/msg00232.html
I also pushed an update for Xenial users to my PPA: https://launchpad.net/~legoktm/+archive/ubuntu/mediawiki-lts
Those packages are for 1.27, which is the older LTS version. 1.31 hit unstable today, so I'll be providing backports for it shortly!
Shoutout to @0x1f1f for fixing https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=812159 within hours of me asking on IRC! Just waiting on the #debian NEW queue now :)
This is a short term transition to help test something that is close to the next LTS version: 1.31 (out in June!).
