The NFS kernel server is currently the recommended NFS server for use
with Linux, featuring features such as NFSv3 and NFSv4, Kerberos
support via GSS, and much more. It is also significantly faster and
usually more reliable than the user-space NFS servers (from the
unfs3 and nfs-user-server packages). However, it is more difficult to
debug than the user-space servers, and has a slightly different
feature set.
This package contains the user-space support needed to use the
NFS kernel server. Most administrators wishing to set up an NFS server
would want to install this package.

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.

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)
