  • Highlighted packages

    The Ubuntu Security team suggests that contributors look into merging Debian security updates in community-supported packages. If you would like to help Ubuntu but are not sure where to start, this is a great way to do so. See the available merges and SecurityTeam/UpdateProcedures for details on preparing Ubuntu security updates. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in #ubuntu-hardened. To find out other ways of helping out, please see SecurityTeam/GettingInvolved.

  • Miscellaneous and Questions
    • tsimonq2 asked where the highlighted packages went. A: We stopped publishing a list of highlighted packages because Debian merges were seen as more likely to succeed and known to be needed.
    • tsimonq2 commented that QtWebEngine needs an update for its embedded Chromium. Discussion deferred to #ubuntu-hardened.
