Duplicity 0.7.15 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2017-11-13

New in v0.7.15 (2017/11/13)
* Fixed bug introduced in new where process_commandline()
  takes a string not a list. Now it takes both.
* Updated web page for new megabackend requirements.
* Patched in lp:~mterry/duplicity/more-decode-issues
  - Here's some fixes for another couple UnicodeDecodeErrors.
  - The duplicity/ fixes when a user passes a utf8 date string (or a string with bogus
    utf8 characters, but they have to really try to do that). This is bug 1334436.
  - The bin/duplicity change from str(e) to util.uexc(e) fixes bug 1324188.
  - The rest of the changes (util.exception_traceback and bin/duplicity changes to use it) are to
    make the printing of exceptions prettier. Without this, if you see a French exception, you see
    "accept\xe9es" instead of "acceptées".
  - You can test all of these changes in one simple line:
    $ LANGUAGE=fr duplicity remove-older-than $'accept\xffées'
* Fix to allow string, list, and tuple types to support
* Fixed bug #1715650 with patch from Mattheww S
  - Fix to make duplicity attempt a get first, then create, a container
    in order to support container ACLs.
* Fixed bug #1714663 "Volume signed by XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, not XXXXXXXX"

* Fixed bug #1448094 with patch from Tomáš Zvala
  - Don't log incremental deletes for chains that have no incrementals
* Fixed bug #1724144 "--gpg-options unused with some commands"
  - Add --gpg-options to get version run command
* Fixed bug #1720159 - Cannot allocate memory with large manifest file since 0.7.03
  - filelist is not read if --file-changed option in collection-status not present
  - This will keep memory usage lower in non collection-status operations
* Fixed bug #1723890 with patch from Killian Lackhove
  - Fixes error handling in
