New changelog entries:
  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * what-is-ubuntu.xml: long-overdue language updates. Don't call Ubuntu a

  * en/welcome/what-is-debian.xml: drop another outdated reference to Ubuntu
    being a "desktop" system.
  * build/arch-options: add a new 'supports-desktop' condition, which for the
    moment is set only on amd64, i386, and powerpc as the only architectures
    that any flavors are building desktop images for. This may warrant
    further refinement later.
  * disable various references to desktops when 'supports-desktop' is not
  [ dann frazier ]

Import patches-unapplied version 20160121ubuntu1 to ubuntu/xenial-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 2809bc8cba140d0a5434d7dfc87ddea5aaa1b60b

New changelog entries:
  * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
    - Extensive (although possibly incomplete) Ubuntu branding, adjustments
      for our mirror layout, etc.
    - Build only English (for now, until we figure out how to avoid trashing
      translations quite so badly with Ubuntu branding etc.).
    - Drop build-dependency on poxml for now, since we don't ship any
    - Add "Ubuntu and Debian" and "What is Ubuntu?" section, text borrowed
      from the Ubuntu web site. Disable the "What is Debian GNU/Linux?"
    - Build only Ubuntu architectures (amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc,
      ppc64el, s390x).
    - Direct installation reports to ubuntu-users for now.
    - Document mounting /sys in various places.
    - Update chroot-install guide for language packs; add
      a bit more advice about installing grub.
    - Document our root password and sudo arrangements.
    - Adjust various memory and disk space requirements. Talk about the
      default Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu tasks rather than Debian tasks.
    - Document network-console/authorized_keys_url feature
    - Document mirror/udeb/components.
    - Document scheme for preseeding the use of CC.archive.ubuntu.com
    - Document how to override the weak password check.
    - Document preseeding user-setup's home directory encryption facility.
    - Document new simplified partman preseeding.
    - Document partman-auto-lvm/guided_size.
    - Document partman/default_filesystem.
    - Document live-installer/net-image.
    - Improve examples of tasksel/first preseeding to avoid mentioning
      standard, which is installed by default.
    - Document pkgsel/update-policy.
    - Document pkgsel/updatedb.
    - Document apt-setup/security_path.
    - Disable documentation of win32-loader.
    - Document netboot-style USB images. Still mention the hd-media images,
      but they're downplayed since many USB sticks are too small for a full
      Ubuntu ISO image.
    - Retain delta for commented-out OldWorld Mac support because it's easier
      than reverting it; but at this point OldWorld Macs will almost
      certainly never be supported in Ubuntu or Debian.
    - Remove comments about automatic installation methods that have been
      removed from Ubuntu.
    - Document Kickstart installations.
    - Unset supports-floppy-boot for all our architectures.
    - Don't recommend passing http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to
    - Document that i586 processors and i686 without cmov are no longer
    - Translate '&debian;' and '&debian-gnu;' xml entities to 'Ubuntu',
      allowing us to significantly reduce the branding delta.
    - Bump names for xenial.
    - Bump kernelversion to 4.3.
    - Disable all the documentation of loadlin, not just half of it.
    - Never enable the "new-arch" status for any Ubuntu archs.
    - Set the archive url dynamically based on the architecture, to cover
      ports.u.c vs. archive.u.c. LP: #1391019.
    - Revert installation guide changes that say to use /etc/adjtime instead
      of etc/default/rcS; /etc/adjtime is evilbadwrong and not used in
    - Don't include information about tasks that Ubuntu doesn't have.
  * Revert the Debian change to mark "graphical install" as the default, which
    is not a supported option on our d-i based images.
