Dear release team,

We would like to upload a new LTS release version of DPDK to buster.
We have already done this previously in stretch, and it was approved
for the 16.11 LTS series [1][2][3], but given this is a new Debian
release in combination with a new LTS release train I have not yet
uploaded to p-u and will wait for an explicit ACK. We would like to
upload new 18.11 LTS versions as they are released upstream to buster -
EOL is projected in November 2020.

As with the 16.11 LTS, the 18.11 LTS point release has only bug
fixes and no API/ABI changes and has been tested extensively and
deployed on Debian Buster and more distros, which includes running
regression tests.

The source debdiff is attached.

The most relevant packaging changes are the dropping of an unused
build-dependency (libcap-dev), and adding missing dependencies (libelf-
dev and libjansson-dev for libpdkd-dev, and rdma-core on the Mellanox
drivers packages).
5 patches that have been merged upstream in the LTS point releases are
The Git repository metadata (and README.source guideline) has been
updated, as we have moved the packaging from an external service to
As evident from the git branch and the changelog this version
corresponds to what's uploaded in unstable at the moment - this is
going to change very soon as we will be moving unstable/bullseye to a
new upstream release train in the next few weeks.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
