nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu12) xenial; urgency=medium
* Drop gssproxy as it's not in Ubuntu (LP: #1446851)
* Fix no nfs doesn't show failed units on client (LP: #1452667)
2015-11-24 - Martin Pitt <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu11) xenial; urgency=medium
* Drop obsolete and no-op dh_installinit --upstart-only option.
(LP: #1519228)
2015-08-28 - Martin Pitt <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu10) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/nfs-common.links: Add naming compatibility symlinks for
gssd.service → rpc-gssd.service and idmapd.service →  /dev/null (as this
is bound to/handled by nfs-server.service) to provide a match for the
upstart job names. (LP: #1476010).
2015-07-27 - Martin Pitt <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu9) wily; urgency=medium
* Drop versioned mountall dependency. Trusty's is already newer and we don't
need it with systemd under Ubuntu 15.04 and newer.
2015-04-27 - Steve Langasek <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu8.1) vivid; urgency=medium
* Add a dependency on keyutils to nfs-common, so that idmapping will work
under systemd.  LP: #1449074.
2015-04-01 - Didier Roche <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu8) vivid; urgency=medium
* Ship missing .override files
* Ensure we only remove the manual flag from the statd-mounting.override
file, and potentially, remove it if empty.
2015-03-12 - Didier Roche <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu7) vivid; urgency=medium
* 27-systemd-enable-with-systemctl-statd.patch: let the admin
enable/disable statd via systemd tools. (LP: #1428486)
* debian/nfs-common.default: remove NEED_STATD and related comment.
* debian/statd{,-mounting}.upstart: remove the usage of NEED_STATD, we'll
directly disable the jobs now.
* debian/rules: don't start statd by default (or it will trigger upstart
and systemd statd unit startup).
* debian/nfs-common.{preinst,postinst}: transition the conffile to the new
template and enable statd services in both upstart and systemd if
NEED_STATD was set to yes.
* debian/control, debian/*install: move nfs-utils.service to nfs-common
package. (LP: #1436304)
2015-03-06 - Steve Langasek <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu6) vivid; urgency=medium
* Revert previous upload; per upstream, rpc.idmapd is not used when the
nfsidmap utility is available and configured for use in request-key
upcalls.  So rpc.idmapd does not need to be started on clients anymore.
2015-03-06 - Martin Pitt <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu5) vivid; urgency=medium
* Add 27-systemd-start-nfs-idmapd-also-on-clients.patch: idmapd is needed
for clients too, so start it from and stop binding to it
in nfs-server.service. (LP: #1428961)
2015-03-05 - Martin Pitt <>
nfs-utils (1:1.2.8-9ubuntu4) vivid; urgency=medium
* Add autopkgtest for installing server and client on localhost, setting up
two exports, rebooting, and ensuring that the NFS mounts work.
* Add 23-systemd-relax-dependencies.patch: Stop depending on in
the daemons which still do; i. e. add DefaultDependencies=no. This makes
it possible to run NFS during early boot, helps if you e. g. have /var
on NFS, and avoids dependency cycles with rcS init.d scripts which depend
on $remote_fs. (LP: #1428487)
* Shift number prefixes of other systemd patches accordingly, and adjust
them to the above patch.
