This package contains the user mode programs you need to add and remove
VLAN devices from your ethernet devices.
A typical application for a VLAN enabled box is a single wire firewall,
router or load balancer.
You need a VLAN Linux kernel for this.  Linux kernel versions >= 2.4.14
have VLAN support.

vlan (1.9-3.2ubuntu5) artful; urgency=medium
* Allow ip-rp-filter to be 0, 1, or 2 instead of only 0 or 1
(LP: #1716964)
2017-05-29 - Dan Streetman <dan.streetman@canonical.com>
vlan (1.9-3.2ubuntu4) artful; urgency=medium
* Correct previous patch, to work for ifupdown configuration where a
vlan is configured but the vlan's raw device has no ifupdown config.
(LP: #1573272)
2017-03-30 - Dan Streetman <dan.streetman@canonical.com>
vlan (1.9-3.2ubuntu3) artful; urgency=medium
* In vlan ifupdown pre-up script, instead of calling ip link up for
raw device before creating vlan interface, do a full ifup for raw
device.  Otherwise, if raw device processes ifup after vlan device,
the raw device may be taken down and back up, which removes all vlan
routes and other configuration. (LP: #1573272)

vlan (1.9-3.2ubuntu2) yakkety; urgency=medium
* If VLAN is configured with higher MTU than raw device MTU, which can
happen if VLAN is ifup'ed before raw device, then increase raw device
MTU first so the VLAN ifup does not fail. (LP: #1224007)

vlan (1.9-3.2ubuntu1) utopic; urgency=medium
* Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
- Add a udeb for vconfig in debian-installer.
- Add support for biosdevname
- Revert ifupdown integration as event based bringup is currently
incompatible with the way ifupdown sets up bridges and vlans.
- Add udev hook and script for event based bring up.

vlan (1.9-3.2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Don't exit when we're called by bridge-utils.
2014-03-23 - Andrew Shadura <andrewsh@debian.org>
vlan (1.9-3.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Don't act on VLAN interfaces already supported by ifupdown
(Closes: #705456)
* Don't depend on iproute, depend on iproute2 instead.
2014-03-20 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
vlan (1.9-3ubuntu10) trusty; urgency=medium
* Only create VLANs for the interface we are processing. (LP: #1295371)
2013-08-26 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
vlan (1.9-3ubuntu9) saucy; urgency=low
* Transition from iproute to iproute2.
2012-09-10 - Stéphane Graber <stgraber@ubuntu.com>
vlan (1.9-3ubuntu8) quantal; urgency=low
* Revert last chance as udev doesn't accept that syntax.
* Upon closer review of the scripts in the vlan package, I don't actually
believe that the race/deadlock situation found in bridge-utils applies to
vlan as it never waits for an interface to show up or call a script that
