libhandy 0.0.2
24th July 2018

Last month we tagged the first release of libhandy, a GTK+ library to ease the development of GNOME applications for mobile devices and small screens. Two of the contained widgets, HdyLeaflet and HdyColumn, are containers to address the specific size constraints of phones (video by Adrien). The rest are special purpose widgets, needed more than once on mobile devices, e.g. a Keypad (video).

This time around for the v0.0.2 release we mostly have bugfixes. From the Debian package's changelog:

[ Adrien Plazas ]
* dialer: Make the grid visible and forbid show all.
* example: Drop usage of show_all()
* dialer: Add column-spacing and row-spacing props.
* example: Change the grid's spacing and minimum size request.
* flatpak: Allow access to the dconf config dir.
* Replace phone-dial-symbolic by call-start-symbolic.
* column: Fix height for width request.

[ Guido Günther ]
* Use source.puri.sm instead of code.puri.sm.
* Add AUTHORS file
* gitlab-ci: Build on Debian buster using provided build-deps.
* arrows: test object construction
* Multiple gtk-doc fixes
* docs: Abort on warnings.
* DialerButton: free letters

The Debian package was uploaded to Debian's NEW queue.

git-buildpackage 0.9.2
10th November 2017

After some time in the experimental distribution I've uploaded git-buildpackage 0.9.0 to sid a couple of weeks ago and were now at 0.9.2 as of today. This brought in two new commands:

We moved to better supported tools:

We added integration with pk4:

 mkdir -p ~/.config/pk4/hooks-enabled/unpack/
 ln -s /usr/share/pk4/hooks-available/unpack/gbp ~/.config/pk4/hooks-enabled/unpack/

so pk4 invokes gbp import-dsc on package import.

There were lots of improvements all over the place like gbp pq now importing the patch queue on switch (if it's not already there) and gbp import-dsc and import-orig not creating pointless master branches if debian-branch != 'master'. And after being broken in the early 0.9.x cycle gbp buildpackage --git-overlay ... should be much better supported now that we have proper tests.

All in all 26 bugs fixed. Thanks to everybody who contributed bug reports and fixes.

Debian LTS

August marked the sixteenth month I contributed to Debian LTS under the Freexian umbrella. I spent 9 hours (of allocated 8) mostly on Rails related CVEs which resulted in DLA-603-1 and DLA-604-1 fixing 6 CVEs and marking others as not affecting the packages. The hardest part was proper testing since the split packages in Wheezy don't allow to run the upstream test suite as is. There's still CVE-2016-0753 which I need to check if it affects activerecord or activesupport.

Additionally I had one relatively quiet week of LTS frontdesk work triaging 10 CVEs.
