autopkgtest 3.19.2 source package in Ubuntu


autopkgtest (3.19.2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Fix "apt-get source" version detection:
    - Ignore source record "Binary:" entries which are not actually binaries
      of that source.
    - Take the highest source version of all encountered binaries. In other
      words, as soon as apt pinning uses one package from -proposed, use the
      tests from -proposed too.
    - Only consider binaries which exist in all releases. This avoids newly
      introduced binaries (library transitions, new kernel versions) to skew
      the intended apt pinning as they would always win the "highest version"
      check from above.
  * Install /usr/share/autopkgtest/setup-commands/* scripts as executable, to
    make them work for vmdebootstrap --customize. (Closes: #810862)
  * ssh-setup/nova: Use extended RE for matching --image pattern.
  * setup-commands/setup-testbed: Fix handling of options in sources.list.
  * tools/adt-build-lxd: Fix parsing of release name from apt sources with
    options if lsb_release is not available.
  * setup-commands/setup-testbed: Regenerate initramfs when adding udev rule
    for disabling ifnames (for chroots).
  * adt-buildvm-ubuntu-cloud: Drop duplicate sed of cloud-init.prerm.
  * adt-buildvm-ubuntu-cloud: Don't try to run "None" if --post-command is not
  * adt-virt-lxc: Add timeouts to all LXC operations.
  * Fix chowning for "rw-build-tree" restriction: run it as root if available,
    and otherwise ignore it entirely. (LP: #1535234)
  * Drop apt-cache showsrc --only-source option, as this is not yet understood
    by Ubuntu 12.04's apt.
  *, execute_timeout(): Avoid UnicodeDecodeErrors when called
    programs send gibberish. Decode manually with "replace" error mode
    instead. (LP: #1535741)
  * adt-virt-lxc: Avoid unnecessary reading and decoding of program outputs if
    we don't actually use it.
  * ssh-setup/nova: Use the image with the latest "created" time, instead of
    the last lexicographic name.

autopkgtest: automatic as-installed testing for Debian packages

 autopkgtest runs tests on binary packages. The tests are run on the
 package as installed on a testbed system (which may be found via a
 virtualisation or containment system). The tests are expected to be
 supplied in the corresponding Debian source package.
 See adt-run(1) and /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest.
 Depending on which virtualization server you want to use, you need to
 install additional packages (schroot, lxc, lxd, or qemu-system)
 For generating tests of well-known source packages such as Perl and Ruby
 libraries you should install the autodep8 package.
