rax-nova-agent (2.1.13-0ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium
* Switch to watching upstream releases on GitHub
* New upstream version 2.1.13
- Added Netplan support
* Build-depend on python3-yaml
* Skip tests newly failing due to lack of proper netplan support
* Make python3-novaagent depend on xenstore-utils (LP: #1762718)
Thanks to Dimitri John Ledkov
* Depend on needed packages: xe-guest-utilities, xenstore-utils and cloud-init
* Pick configuration files shipped originally in rax-openstack-guest-agents.
Disable cloud-init network configuration, as nova-agent will do it.
Override xe-daemon.service unit so that it also avoids default dependencies
creating systemd's dependency loops with cloud-init.
Give syslog write access to the kernel logs
* Don't restart nova-agent service on upgrade
* Fix nova-agent.service using upstream patches, using notify and local
.service changes, thanks to Dimitri John Ledkov from some of the patches
* Depend on python3-systemd which is needed but requiring it as a module

rax-nova-agent (2.1.12-0ubuntu2) bionic; urgency=medium
* Make transitional package to be Architecture: all and move it to oldlibs
* Make the transitional package depend on misc:Depends instead of
overriding Lintian error
