lxc (2.0.0-0ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Add a distro-info test dependency as it's needed to get information
about new Ubuntu releases. (LP: #1572188)
This is needed to fix the current autopkgtest failures.
2016-04-06 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
lxc (2.0.0-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* New upstream release (2.0.0 final)
- Upstream announcement: https://linuxcontainers.org/lxc/news
- Change from last rc:
+ Allow bypassing bdev auto detection by setting lxc.rootfs.backend
This fixes a longstanding performance issue caused by LXC having
to run through all its backends and forking sub-processes to
perform the detection.
* Make new lintian happy:
- Bump to 3.9.7 standards
- Update git URL to https
- Override systemd Documentation field warning (upstream units)

lxc (2.0.0~rc15-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* New upstream release (2.0.0~rc15)
- lxc-debian: Update supported release names
- lxc-ubuntu: Fix building on secondary architectures
- Update .gitignore for *.so.*
- Use smarter error handling for lxc_strmmap()
- Use common lxc ordering for included headers
- Fix possible buffer overflow strncat only returns its first
argument and not the end of the written string. Thus "buf-pos" is always
0 and consquently no range check is performed.
- Use snprintf instead of strncat
- CRIU: Support using the CRIU page server for faster migrations.
This optimization isn't used by default, it requires a custom liblxc1
- Fix buffer overflow in do_start()
- Fixed indentation and comments
* Drop previously cherry-picked change, now upstream.

lxc (2.0.0~rc14-0ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Cherry-pick tentative upstream fix:
- lxc-ubuntu: Fix building on secondary architectures
2016-03-29 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
lxc (2.0.0~rc14-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* New upstream release (2.0.0~rc14)
- open_without_symlink: Don't SYSERROR on something else than ELOOP
- lxc-busybox: Touch /etc/fstab in the container rootfs
- lxc.spec.in: fixed hardcoded path to lxc-net config file
- sync: add LXC_SYNC_ERROR to report errors from another process.
- start: use LXC_SYNC_ERROR to report errors.
- lxc-busybox: Remove warning for dynamically linked Busybox
- utils: split null_stdfds() to open_devnull() and set_stdfds()
- start: open /dev/null from "host" /dev
- Fix installation of out-of-tree (VPATH) builds
- Timezone inside the container is not the same as the host
- use httpredir.debian.org as the default Debian mirror
- always provide a default mirror for debootstraping Ubuntu
- only enable Debian's main repository by default
- start: only use host's /dev/null when absolutely necessary
- add funs to mmap() files to \0-terminated strings
- use lxc_mmap() and lxc_munmap()
- better naming for mmap helpers
2016-03-23 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
lxc (2.0.0~rc13-0ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Fix the bash completion profiles.
Now that it's in /usr/share, we need it to match the command name,
so rename the main profile to lxc1 and add a symlink for each supported
2016-03-22 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
lxc (2.0.0~rc13-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

- c/r: don't fail if there is no console_fd on restore
- lxc-checkpoint: make things static when they can be
- c/r: rename restore & friends to __criu_restore
