Hi all,as of today, the Debian squeeze LTS support will cease and squeeze will finally enter the archived archives of Debian.
.oO( /me gets out his handkerchief ...)As (paid) LTS contributor you may wonder what to do next, esp. until the official Debian wheezy LTS support period starts on 26th April 2016. At least I did wonder about that, today...
One thing, we can do, I guess, is helping out with the Debian Security Team regarding package updates in Debian wheezy.
For this, we can run bin/lts-needs-forward-port.py from the secure-testing repo and see what issues we fixed in squeeze and port those fixes to the package version in wheezy-security. Package updates must be coordinated with the Debian Security Team, not within the LTS team, though:
* prepare a fixed package * test the package * send a .debdiff to firstname.lastname@example.org * wait for feedback and ideally permission to upload to wheezy-security (Is the above said correct? Please elaborate, if not).Currently, we have these candidates of potentially easy-to-fix-in-wheezy packages:

"""I am posting this CVE/package list here on purpose, because the said script may not be working anymore, once the squeeze Debian package repo section has been moved to archive.debian.org.
Furthermore, as it seems, we need to modify some bits and pieces in the secure-testing repo to get our workflow up-and-running for Debian wheezy LTS. Is anyone already working on that? What is the current status?
Has there already been a discussion that I am not aware of about how the LTS team can work on wheezy-security updates in a coordinated fashion until the 26th of April? If there has not been a discussion, yet, we should sort this out during this week. My proposal would be to prepare the Debian wheezy LTS workflow in the secure-testing SVN repo, so that our upcoming workflow can be very similar to what we are used to. For the interim phase until the 26th of April 2016, however, we need to run a modified approach.
Request for feedback and comments... (I have some concrete proposals in mind, but I want to check, if these issues have already been solved, first).
