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:
- Add debian/avahi-daemon.upstart, debian/avahi-dnsconfd.upstart,
* Dropped Ubuntu changes:
- debian/control: Add versioned dependency on the dbus that satisfies our
upstart job dependency. This happened before precise already.
- Add udebs corresponding to libavahi-common3 and libavahi-core7, so
that we can use them for Eucalyptus integration in the installer.
Eucalyptus is long gone, and these udebs haven't been used in a long
- d/p/skip-nproc-in-container.patch: Detect whether we are running in a
container, and do not set rlimit_nproc if so. Current LXC does not
create /run/container_type any more so the patch is a no-op. It's also
not necessary any more as avahi does not fail if it cannot set the

[ Andreas Henriksson ]
* Recommend iproute2 instead of transitional package iproute.

with a fallback to net-tools and graceful degradation if neither is
installed. (Closes: #762326)
[ Michael Biebl ]
* Don't run the avahi-autoipd ifupdown hook scripts if the package has been
removed but not purged. (Closes: #780872)
* Use --restart-after-upgrade for avahi-daemon and avahi-dnsconfd to
minimise downtime and avoid avahi-daemon being triggered via socket or
D-Bus activation during upgrades. (Closes: #768620)
* Mask avahi-daemon.service on remove to avoid the stop request being
cancelled via socket or D-Bus activation.
