releasing version 6.4ubuntu5linaro1

78. By Ricardo Salveti on 2011-10-13

* Merge from Ubuntu oneiric, remaining changes:
  - debian/conffiles: only point the wiki.linaro.org as the documentation
  - debian/control: Linaro as the package maintainer
  - debian/update-motd.d/10-help-text: able to report bugs against pristine
    Ubuntu package (LP: #627777)
  - etc/issue, etc/issue.net, etc/lsb-release: Linaro release info
* /etc/issue, /etc/issue.net, /etc/lsb-release: Prepare for Oneiric
  release.
* debian/preinst:
  - fix conffile prompt for unmodified 00-header, 10-help-text
    (LP: #820233)
* debian/rules:
  - install the preinst into the package as no helper is used
* add update-motd.d files to conffiles (LP: #813282)
* update-motd.d/10-help-text: modify server documentation link to be the
  official documentation page of the installed distribution. Thanks to Tim
  Kuijsten for working on this. (LP: #744253)
* rather than depend on lsb-release test to see if lsb_release is available
  (LP: #575885)
* Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes:
  - Branding changes.
  - Add /etc/lsb-release file.
  - Add lsb-release-udeb package.
  - Record md5sums of unmodified /etc/profile versions so that we can
    upgrade it automatically.
  - Various bashrc extensions.
  - Do not install /usr/local dirs with staff group writeability, as there
    are cases where somebody can become any user but root (like NFS).
  - Update the motd upgrade handling to know about /etc/motd.tail.
  - Add default /etc/networks file.
  - Added information about the docs web page.
  - Restore order line in /etc/host.conf with a comment.
  - Ship /root mode 700 by default.
* Dropped changes:
  - drop versioned dependency on libpam-modules, satisfied in all versions
    since hardy (and earlier)
  - remove /var/lock and /var/run: this is handled differently in Debian,
    no reason to diverge
  - fixing up permissions of files copied by ubiquity: transition completed
    in lucid.
  - debian/postinst.in: replace references to /var/run with /run: /run is
    still a draft standard for the time being and should only be used for
    those parts of the system that were being placed *other* than in
    /var/run for various reasons (e.g., /dev/.udev, /lib/init/rw).
    /var/run must continue to exist and be functional, and initscripts
    guarantees a smooth transition from /var/run to /run once we are ready
    to start doing away with /var/run (once the FHS officially ratifies
    /run as its replacement), so there's no reason to diverge from Debian
    here.
* Added /run. Closes: #620157.
* On new installs:
  - Create /run/lock (debian-installer will remove it but this will
  ensure that it exists even on chroot environments).
  - Symlink /var/run to /run.
  - Symlink /var/lock to /run/lock.
* On upgraded systems, initscripts will handle the transition to /run.
* Added "Breaks: initscripts << (2.88dsf-13.3)" to ensure that initscripts
  is upgraded first, as otherwise udev would break.
* Thanks a lot to Roger Leigh.
* Removed duplicate code in share/profile, causing /etc/profile.d/*
  scripts to be executed twice (LP: #790050)
* debian/1777-dirs: remove /var/lock (replaced by /run/lock on tmpfs)
* debian/directory-list: remove /var/run and /var/lock, add /run
* debian/postinst.in: replace references to /var/run with /run
* Restore /usr/share/base-files/networks.
* Merge with Debian; remaining changes:
  - Branding changes.
  - Add /etc/lsb-release file.
  - Add lsb-release-udeb package.
  - Record md5sums of unmodified /etc/profile versions so that we can
    upgrade it automatically.
  - Various bashrc extensions.
  - Restore order line in /etc/host.conf with a comment.
  - Add default /etc/networks file.
  - Implement LSB-3.1, 16.2 (/etc/profile.d).
  - Added information about the docs web page.
  - Update the motd upgrade handling to know about /etc/motd.tail.
  - Do not install /usr/local dirs with staff group writeability, as there
    are cases where somebody can become any user but root (like NFS).
  - Change permissions of kernels copied from the Live CD by Ubiquity
    1.9.4 thru 1.10.9.
  - Correct group ownership of files changed by Ubiquity 1.7.5 thru
    1.10.9.
  - Ship /root mode 700 by default.
* Dropped /run until everything else is ready for it. In particular,
  udev should not blindly assume that it works just because it exists.
* Added /run. Requested by Roger Leigh. Closes: #620157.
* Changed issue, issue.net and debian_version to read "wheezy/sid".
* Changed issue, issue.net and debian_version to read "6.0".
* Updated README accordingly.
* Changed postinst to not reset /var/run/utmp permissions on every upgrade.
  It is definitely not base-files business to change the permissions of
  an already existing /var/run/utmp, as the system admin might have
  changed them on purpose after the file was created. Closes: #601746.
* Changed /etc/profile so that it defines PATH again. Closes: #571086.
  We will have plenty of time to discuss about this after the release
  of squeeze, but for now, this is the safe thing to do.
* Added GPL version 1 from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/Licenses/ as there
  are a lot of packages still using it. Bug #436105.
* Drop umask setting from /etc/profile, will be handled by pam_umask.
  Closes: #583967.
* Ordinary user accounts start at UID 1000 by default, but they also
  end at 29999 by default. Modified default /etc/profile accordingly.
* Changed default /etc/profile so that the new umask of 002 is only
  used for ordinary user accounts, which, according to policy, start
  at uid 1000 by default.
* Changed umask in default /etc/profile to 002, which has a little bit
  more sense than 022 on systems like Debian having User Private Groups.
  As usual for /etc/profile, only new installs will have the new default,
  so nobody will be surprised by this on upgrades. Hopefully, this change
  will be documented in the release notes for squeeze as well, for users
  who install squeeze from scratch. Closes: #248140, #581434.
* Refresh GNU licenses from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/Licenses/, as they
  have expanded the embedded tabs. Closes: #572245.
* Switch to "3.0 (native)" format.
* Changed default /etc/profile so that it sources /etc/profile.d/*.sh
  as mandated by the LSB section 16.2. Closes: #545756.
  Package maintainers: Please don't use profile.d if you can avoid it,
  as policy says "A program must not depend on environment variables
  to get reasonable defaults".
* Removed questions about profile.d from FAQ.
* Added question in FAQ to document the fact that some configuration
  files in /etc are never updated on upgrades. Closes: #571083.
* Changed default /usr/src to be root:root and 755. Closes: #573701.
  The old permissions were of little benefit, and the user can still
  change this after installing a new system anyway.
* Renamed FAQ to README and added a compatibility symlink.
* Removed obsolete Depends on base-passwd, as version 2.0.3.4 is more
  than 10 years old and we don't support upgrades which skip releases.
* Dropped preinst completely, as it was there just to support upgrades
  from very old releases (that we don't support anymore).
* Removed postinst code that supports upgrades from very old releases.
* Changed default permissions for /root to 700, as many admins consider
  it should be more private than other home directories. Closes: #514794.
* Changed default permissions for /var/log/btmp to 660, to be in sync
  with permissions set by logrotate. Closes: #547407.
* Do not export PS1 in /root/.bashrc, as it has bash escapes and it's
  inherited to subshells that do not have to be bash. Closes: #567733.
* Added debian_chroot variable to default PS1 in /root/.bashrc.
* Comment out PS1 in /root/.bashrc anyway, as /etc/profile and
  /etc/bash.bashrc already care about it. Closes: #443245.
* Comment out umask as well, as it's already in /etc/profile.
* Added /usr/local/games to default PATH in /etc/profile. Closes: #487105.
* While we are at it, comment out everything about PATH, as /etc/login.defs
  should already care about this.
* Changed default /etc/profile so that it sources /etc/bash.bashrc
  if the shell is bash. Closes: #275622.
* Drop \u part from default PS1 in /etc/profile, as it's only useful
  for people with several non-root accounts. Most people are either root
  or an ordinary user, so $ and # are enough to differentiate between them.
* Comment out PS1 setting in /etc/profile anyway, as we have bash.bashrc.
* /etc/issue, /etc/issue.net, /etc/lsb-release: Welcome to Oneiric!
