Would you like to take care of this yourself?

If yes, please follow the workflow we have defined here:

If that workflow is a burden to you, feel free to just prepare an
updated source package and send it to debian-lts@lists.debian.org
(via a debdiff, or with an URL pointing to the source package,
or even with a pointer to your packaging repository), and the members
of the LTS team will take care of the rest. Indicate clearly whether you
have tested the updated package or not.

I currently maintain libexif but am not a DD, so I can't upload the
binary packages as per your workflow.

I've prepared a debdiff covering all outstanding CVEs and two
instances of undefined behaviour.

Internal tests pass at build time. The patches are the same as those
used in Sid, as the upstream version has not changed.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything else. Feel
free to adjust the changelog.


I just reviewed your .debdiff. Thanks for the backporting of all those CVEs.

I see that libexif in stretch and buster require uploads to. As the issues have been marked <no-dsa> for stretch and buster, the security updates have to be uploaded as (old)stable release updates (SRUs).

I can easily forward port your .debdiff or you send me .debdiffs that match against libexif in stretch + buster. What approach do you prefer. I am happy to sponsor your uploads to stretch and buster.
