  [ Didier Roche ]
  * Add a remember option to whoopsie so that users can diminish
    crash interactions (LP: #1778497)
  * Move apport autoreport service files to apport binary package.
    Having them in apport-noui was creating a bug where autoreport
    wasn't working on desktop. As we check in the launched script
    for whoopsie and autoreport file, we don't autoreport by default.
    (LP: #1778694)
    apport-noui still touches the file to enable autoreport on install.
  * Remove upstart service and watershed dependency.
  * Assume if no whoopsie that crash reporting is enabled:
    As the old configuration that was a whoopsie configuration file that was
    that was never updated by the whoopsie API, we assume that no
    whoopsie installed (not the default) == manual send report is allowed.
    If people want to disable crash reporting:
    - get whoopsie installed and disable crash reporting in g-c-c
    - uninstall apport

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * Start apport-autoreport after installing apport-noui which is part of
    improving apport's automatic crash reporing feature. (LP: #1778694)

  * New upstream release:
    - apport/sandboxutils.py: when installing extra packages do not install

      conflicting packages when they conflict with themselves, or when they
      conflict with but also provide a virtual package.
    - bin/apport-retrace: add a --no-stracktrace-source option that does not
      do the work of creating a StacktraceSource field in the retraced report
      thereby decreasing the time to retrace.

  * REGRESSION UPDATE: Fix regression in previous upload by re-enabling
    container support. (LP: #1732518)
  * Add code preventing a user from confusing apport by using
    a manually crafted filesystem inside a combination of a user and mount
    namespace.
  * Add a check in apport receiver for the number of arguments so that
    should another argument be added later, the receiver will simply ignore
    the crash until it itself gets updated.

   * New upstream release:
     - SECURITY UPDATE: Denial of service via resource exhaustion and
       privilege escalation when handling crashes of tainted processes.
     - When /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable is set to 2, do not assume that
       the user and group owning the /proc/<PID>/stat file is the same
       owner and group that started the process. Rather check the dump
       mode of the crashed process and do not write a core file if its
       value is 2. Thanks to Sander Bos for discovering this issue!
       (CVE-2017-14177, LP: #1726372)
     - SECURITY UPDATE: Denial of service via resource exhaustion,
       privilege escalation, and possible container escape when handling
       crashes of processes inside PID namespaces.
     - Change the method for determining if a crash is from a container
       so that there are no false positives from software using PID
       namespaces. Additionally, disable container crash forwarding by
       ignoring crashes that occur in a PID namespace. This functionality
       may be re-enabled in a future update. Thanks to Sander Bos for
       discovering this issue!
