Bug#859122: about 500 DLAs missing from the website

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal


First, thanks for doing the work of importing DLAs and DSAs in the
website, it is greatly appreciated.

However, during a discussion on the debian-lts@ mailing list, we have
noticed that DLAs since squeeze LTS support was terminated have not
been imported:


An excerpt from the discussion:

> Here's the bits that are missing:
>  * the last DLA on the website is DLA-445-2, which is basically the last

>  * among those 445 DLAs, there are actually 31 missing:

>    424
>  * even worse, it seems there are at least 20 advisories missing from

>    $ grep DLA- data/DLA/list | sed 's/.* DLA-//;s/ .*//' | sort -n | sed '/445-2/,$d' | wc -l
>    465
>  * the canonical list has 928 advisories:
>    secure-testing$ grep DLA- data/DLA/list | wc -l 
>    928

Is there any reason why new DLAs have not been imported?

Is there anything we can do to help in completing that import?

I will open a separate ticket regarding possible automation shortly.
