I spent 20 hours on the LTS / ELTS project, thanks to the LTS / ELTS sponsors for enabling this.

October was spent working on the following Debian projects;

Overall I spent about 8 hours on administrative duties and about 12 on project funding activities for a total of 20.

I also worked a bit on packaging Henrik Sandklef's flict project outside of my regular work. Flict is an interesting license compliance tool which can help you in complex FOSS licensing situations.
