Free Software Efforts (2017W42)

Here’s my weekly report for week 42 of 2017. In this week I have replaced my spacebar, failed to replace a HDD and begun the process to replace my YubiKey.

Debian

Eariler in the week I blogged about powerline-taskwarrior . There is a new upstream version available that includes the patches I had produced for Python 2 support and I have filed #879225 to remind me to package this.

The state of emscripten is still not great, and as I don’t have the time to chase this up and I certainly don’t have the time to fix it myself, I’ve converted the ITP for csdr to an RFP.

As I no longer have the time to maintain map.debian.net, I have released this domain name and published the sources behind the service.

Tor Project

There was a request to remove the $ from family fingerprint on Atlas. These actually come from Onionoo and we have decided to fix this in Onionoo, but I did push a small fix for Atlas this week that makes sure that Atlas doesn’t care if there are $ prefixes or not.

I requested that a Trac component be created for metrics-bot. I wrote a seperate post about metrics-bot.

I also attended the weekly metrics team meeting.

Sustainability

I believe it is important to be clear not only about the work I have already completed but also about the sustainability of this work into the future. I plan to include a short report on the current sustainability of my work in each weekly report.

I have not had any free software related expenses this week. The current funds I have available for equipment, travel and other free software expenses remains £60.52. I do not believe that any hardware I rely on is looking at imminent failure.

I do not find it likely that I’ll be travelling to Cambridge for the miniDebConf as the train alone would be around £350 and hotel accomodation a further £600 (to include both me and Ana).
