 xen-tools  - Tools to manage Xen virtual servers
Closes: 774936 776487 783060
 xen-tools (4.6-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release
     + Fix usage of nonexistent variable in removeDebianPackage (Closes:
       #774936) Thanks Lukas Schwaighofer!
     + Change all occurrences of to
     + Ubuntu 12.04 Lucid Lynx and 14.10 Utopic Unicorn now EoL.
     + Preliminary support for Debian 9 Stretch and Ubuntu 15.10 Wily
     + Installs bash completion into /usr/share/bash-completion/ (fixes
       lintian warning package-install-into-obsolete-dir)
     + Allows # within configuration file comments. (Closes: #783060;
       thanks Jean-Michel Nirgal Vourgère for the bug report and patch!)
     + Testsuite: Let ignore the .git directory. (t/modules.t
       failed if a git commit message had a line starting with "use ".)
     + Testsuite: Optimize and clean up
     + Drop all occurrences of apt's --force-yes parameter. It only forces
       the installation of untrusted packages and that's unwanted. (Closes:
     + Support passing commandline options with --debootstrap-cmd.
     + Use -o APT::Install-Recommends=false instead of
       --no-install-recommends for backwards compatibility with older APT
       versions which don't know either (but accept any Foo=Bar parameter
       to "-o"). Allows one to install earlier Debian releases (e.g. Etch)
       with the default configuration again.
     + Use md5 as default hash method again, to be able to properly set
       passwords in older releases. Does not affect passwords changed later
       inside the DomU.
     + Split off hardcoded release code names list and default mirrors in
       xen-create-image into separate configuration file which are parsed
       before the default settings or command-line options are set.
     + Pass --yes to lvcreate only if LVM version is 2.02.99 or
       higher. Fixes regression introduced with 4.5 by the fix for #754517.
       - Add new (build-)dependency on libsort-versions-perl.
     + Report all SSH fingerprints of the created DomU, not only RSA ones.
     + Split up test suite in functionality/compatibility tests (t) and
       author/release tests (xt).
     + Make test suite support as-installed-testing
       - Mark package as autopkgtestable.
     + Multiple release workflow improvements (target release in Makefile):
       - Use TMPDIR instead of TMP for temporary directories.
       - Always run the full test suite before doing a release.
       - Use maximum compression and don't store time stamps in tar ball.
       - Make "release" target to include "orig-tar-gz" and tagging.
     + New option --keyring which is passed through to deboootstrap. Its
       default values work around bug #792729 in debootstrap.
     + Supports "unstable", "oldstable" and "oldoldstable" as distribution
       names, too. ("oldoldstable" is not yet supported by debootstrap, see
       feature request #792734 in debootstrap.)
     + New example script helpful for release testing.
     + Support VLANs with Open vSwitch (GH-2). Thanks to Félix Barbeira
       for the patch.
   * Update Vcs-* headers and documentation as Gitorious closed its doors
     in June 2015 and is now only available with static contents.
   * Recommend debian-archive-keyring (for installing Debian DomUs on
     derivatives) and ubuntu-archive-keyring (for installing Ubuntu DomUs
     on Debian).
   * Reduce the list of alternative xen-hypervisor-* packages to just
     "xen-hypervisor" which is a virtual package provided by at least all
     xen-hypervisor-* packages since Debian 6 Squeeze.
   * Recommend lvm2, it's at least required if the --lvm option is used.
   * Add an adequate as-installed test to debian/tests/control.
