nfs-utils (1:1.3.4-2.1ubuntu5) bionic; urgency=medium
* Drop obsoleted 20-ticket-expired-error.patch (LP: #1709129)
The original issue is fixed in the kernel starting with version 3.10.
* Refresh patches
* Remove whitespace after '=' in service files
2017-12-01 - Matthias Klose <>
nfs-utils (1:1.3.4-2.1ubuntu4) bionic; urgency=medium
* Convert mountstats and nfsiostat scripts to Python3 and recommend
python3 instead of python. LP: #1735458.
* Provide UINT16_MAX definition if not provided by glibc.

nfs-utils (1:1.3.4-2.1ubuntu2) artful; urgency=medium
* Fix flaky autopkgtest: a 'sync' after an update on the server does not
guarantee that the change is visible on the client.  For that, we need
to flush the inode/dentry cache instead.
2017-08-03 - Balint Reczey <>
nfs-utils (1:1.3.4-2.1ubuntu1) artful; urgency=low
* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- debian/nfs-common.default: always start idmapd automatically; drop
the configuration option.
- Add 20-ticket-expired-error.patch: Add "-e" (ticket expiry is error)
option to rpc.gssd to prevent hangs due to EKEYEXPIRED error from kernel
on ticket expiry. (LP: #794112)
- Add 90-gss-free-lucid-sec-context.patch: adjust for changes to the ctx
argument of the serialize_krb5_ctx() function. (LP: #1331201)
- Add remove-gssproxy.patch: Drop gssproxy as it does not exist in Ubuntu
(LP: #1446851)
- Add debian/nfs-common.maintscript: Clean up obsolete conffiles (upstart
jobs) on upgrades. This needs to be kept until after 18.04 LTS.
- Fixing nfs-mountd dependency on rpcbind (race condition) (LP: #1590799)
by adding "rpcbind.socket" to "nfs-mountd.service"  as a dependency
to avoid race conditions:
- Add systemd-Fix-nfs-mountd-dependency-on-rpcbind.patch
* Dropped already integrated changes:
- Add a dependency on keyutils to nfs-common, so that idmapping will work
under systemd. (LP: #1449074)
