5df1983... by dann frazier on 2016-06-07

Import patches-unapplied version 20160121ubuntu2.1 to ubuntu/xenial-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 531e87f82371f62bcdb30e85e60041bbc948a735

New changelog entries:
  * Documentation updates for xenial, tracked via LP: #1590062:
    - Backport updates from yakkety that also apply to xenial:
      - what-is-ubuntu.xml: long-overdue language updates. Don't call Ubuntu
        a "desktop operating system", and list all of the currently-supported
      - en/welcome/what-is-debian.xml: drop another outdated reference to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
      - List Cavium ThunderX as a supported arm64 platform
      - Make the bios-setup UEFI section apply to arm64 as well; move U-Boot
        specific content into a U-Boot-only section.
      - Bump version numbers for xenial.
    - [arm64] Replace the CD-ROM instructions with a note that ISO images for
      won't be available until 16.04.1, at which point this change will need
      to be reverted. (Reminder is set in my calendar).

93299e0... by Steve Langasek on 2016-01-26

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.
