Re: last call for wheezy updates and remaining work for transition


As for my work:

As said, I'm waiting for the security team to review the patch. It will
most likely be included in the last Jessie point update, and I will send
the Wheezy update as part of ELTS.

I have always been working on both Wheezy and Jessie at the same time,
so Wheezy EOL isn't going to change much here. Though, I'd really like a
better libav support for Jessie. I have made a list of things that
didn't work very well in Wheezy and which I'd like to improve for Jessie
LTS. I'll communicate about it in a separate e-mail.

I am working on a last batch of security fixes here. I will not have
time to finish them until Wheezy EOL, though. I guess they will be part
of ELTS.

I was really busy these last weeks and didn't have much time to take
part to Wheezy EOL organization. Thank you all for that great work !
