lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu10) xenial; urgency=medium
* Cherry-pick change from lvm2 2.02.133-2 in Debian to move event plugins
back onto the main library patch, which fixes problems with monitoring
failing for snapshots and raid volumes.  Closes: #807279, LP: #1556451,
LP: #1561228.

* Do not start when inside a container (LP: #1568954)

lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu8) xenial; urgency=medium
* Drop debian/85-lvm2.rules. This is redundant now, VGs are already
auto-assembled via lvmetad and 69-lvm-metad.rules. This gets rid of using
watershed, which causes deadlocks due to blocking udev rule processing.
(LP: #1560710)
* debian/rules: Put back initramfs-tools script to ensure that the root and
resume devices are activated (lvmetad is not yet running in the initrd).
* debian/rules: Put back activation systemd generator, to assemble LVs in
case the admin disabled lvmetad.
* Make debian/initramfs-tools/lvm2/scripts/init-premount/lvm2 executable and
remove spurious chmod +x Ubuntu delta in debian/rules.

lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu7) xenial; urgency=medium
* Build-depend on libcorosync-common-dev and others, instead of

lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu5) xenial; urgency=medium
* Drop udev rules from lvm2-udeb package. Otherwise, lvm groups and
volumes are activated behind partman's back e.g. after dasd drive
activation. And thus prevents dasdfmt from succeeding. LP: #1536664
* Drop watershed-udeb dependency, no longer needed.
* Keep dmsetup udev rules.

lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu4) xenial; urgency=medium
* Remove the init script dependency on cman_tool. (LP: #1089013)
- debian/clvm.init: check corosync cluster status since the cman
tooling isn't available in Xenial. Change start/stop dependencies
to dlm instead of cman and openais since neither cman nor openais
are available.

lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=medium
* No-change rebuild to drop python3.4 support.
2015-12-16 - Martin Pitt <>
lvm2 (2.02.133-1ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Lower libdevmapper1.02.1's Depends: dmsetup to a Recommends:. This breaks
the circular dependency that causes upgrade failures. As dmsetup is
"Priority: required", this has no other practical consequences.
