autopkgtest (4.2~ubuntu16.04.1) xenial-backports; urgency=medium

  * No-change backport to xenial

autopkgtest (4.2) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * ssh: Fix result of tests that break the testbed. (LP: #1630578)
  * qemu: Fix user/password login mode without a ttyS1 root shell.
     - Concatenate bytes with each other, not a str to a byte.
     - Sync/flush console after sending password and ttyS1 shell command, wait
       until login is complete before continuing.
     - Send password to sudo for ttyS1 shell command, to also work with
       password-requiring sudo. (LP: #1630963)
  * qemu: Fix reboot in user/password login mode.
  * ssh: Add --capability option.
    This is useful to run tests which require an isolation level or have
    breaks-testbed without a setup script.
  * autopkgtest-build-lxd: Ask "lxc profile" for default bridge instead of
    /etc/default/lxd-bridge. The latter went away in recent LXD versions, and
    "lxc profile show default" also works in earlier versions.
  * Make --apt-upgrade consider a "404" error as test failure.
    Previously all errors from "apt-get update" were considered temporary
    failures, i. e. the setup command always exited with 1. But if we specify
    e. g. a nonexisting release from a distro or a PPA, this won't just go
    away by itself -- we want the test to actually fail instead of getting
    stuck in an eternal "retry on temporary failures" loop.
  * schroot: Don't fail on stderr of schroot as long as it succeeds.
    (LP: #1637898)
  * qemu: Hide detected udev file system properties on /dev/baseimage.
    (Closes: #842299)

  [ Simon McVittie ]
  * VirtSubproc: open arbitrary files in binary mode.
  * VirtSubproc: if check_exec status is nonzero, include stderr in message.
  * qemu: put the shared directory in /run. If the virtual machine's root
    filesystem is read-only, we won't be able to create /autopkgtest.
  * qemu: Move eofcat into /tmp. This avoids having to write it to /bin, which
    might be read-only.  Re-create eofcat on every boot for this.
  * source_rules_command: log the result we got if it is not as expected
    (Closes: #842302)
  * Add 'needs-reboot' restriction. This allows tests to be explicit about
    needing to reboot the machine, rather than assuming that
    'isolation-machine' is enough. It is plumbed into the existing 'reboot'
    capability, which is distinct from 'isolation-machine'.
    (Closes: #842300)
  * Add --setup-commands-boot for commands that must be run at every boot.
    This can be used for doing "mount -o remount,rw /" before any dpkg
    operation, or transient setup like writing files into /run/.
    (Closes: #842091)

autopkgtest (4.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * ssh-setup/nova: Move to python3 and to current -novaclient API
  * schroot: Bump end-session timeout to 5 minutes.
    30 seconds might not be enough when running big schroots on slow disks.
  * ssh-setup/nova: Add --nova-reboot option.
    In some clouds using "nova reboot --poll" waits several minutes until
    after the machine is actually up again. OTOH a simple "reboot" inside some
    other clouds causes network to break after "reboot". As there is no method
    that works everywhere, default to the autopkgtest-virt-ssh behaviour again
    ("reboot" and wait for ssh), and add an option to use "nova reboot"

  [ St├ęphane Graber ]
  * debian/tests/lxd: Update bridge setup to work with LXD 2.3 and higher.
    This moves from /etc/default/lxd-bridge to lxd-internal configuration.

  [ Barry Warsaw ]
  * Support url#refspec format.
    Fix the bug in the previously supported url#branch syntax, where the code
    expected a space separator but the documentation described the # separator.
    Generalize the approach with an explicit fetch/checkout so that GitHub style PR
    refspecs like "refs/pull/21/head" also work as branch name.
    (Closes: #839072)

autopkgtest (4.0.5) unstable; urgency=medium

  * setup-commands/setup-testbed: Don't configure ifupdown when using
    networkd, as done by latest vmdebootstrap.
  * autopkgtest-chroot.1: Fix typo
  * Drop broken and unmaintained ssh-setup/snappy setup script.
    This hasn't ever been used in production and stopped working long ago.
  * Run tests/autopkgtest_args during package build
  * Put virt servers back into $PATH.
    The virt servers were originally intended to be public API (even though not
    documented as such) and other packages might provide virt servers. Put them
    back into /usr/bin, with an "autopkgtest-virt-" prefix to mirror the original
    "adt-virt-" naming. Rename the manpages to match the binaries.
    (Closes: #835204)
  * tests/autopkgtest: Relax checks for testpkg.deb from local repository
    apt 1.3 changes the format, so be less picky about it.
  * Fix "apt-get source" version detection for single-line "Package-List:"

Binary packages built by this source

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.
