(E)LTS report for October
For October, I spent 12h working on LTS on the rustc/cargo bootstrap My original
approach showed some problems, so I attempted to follow the approach taken for
stretch, reusing old packages from snapshot.debian.org. In the end that brought
its own set of problems due to those old packages depending on shared libs that
were too new for jessie, so I finally decided to went back to the original
approach, fixing the various problems that I saw.
I have accumulated some hours backlog, so I'll work this month towards clearing
that, and returning hours to the pool if necessary.
