Avahi is a fully LGPL framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery.
It allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts
running on a local network with no specific configuration. For
example you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to
print to, files to look at and people to talk to.
This package contains the Avahi Daemon which represents your machine
on the network and allows other applications to publish and resolve
mDNS/DNS-SD records.

* Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes:

upstart job dependency.

that we can use them for Eucalyptus integration in the installer.

- d/p/skip-nproc-in-container.patch: Detect whether we are running in a
container, and do not set rlimit_nproc if so.
* Dropped changes, included in Debian:
- d/p/so_reuseport-may-not-exist-in-running-kernel.patch:  If
SO_REUSEPORT returns ENOPROTOOPT, continue as if we did not have the
call at all.

fix a bug where avahi will use 100% CPU after cups is restarted.

avahi (0.6.31-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* d/p/so_reuseport-may-not-exist-in-running-kernel.patch: Do not exit
avahi-daemon if we cannot set SO_REUSEPORT on the socket. This patch has
be taken from Ubuntu, thanks to them (Closes: #732009)
* debian/patches/avahi-core-reserve-space-for-record-data-when-size-estimate.patch:
avahi-core: reserve space for record data when size estimate. This
prevents avahi-daemon from falling into an invalid loop when many CUPS/IPP
printer shares get registered (Closes: #693604)
* debian/libavahi-core7.symbols: Add 2 new symbols exported by the previous
* debian/patches/suse-patch-gtk-box.patch: Don't use GTK vbox API which is
deprecated when compiling for GTK3.
