lsb 9.20170808ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

lsb (9.20170808ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - Re-added LSB compatibility packages, so that auto-downloadable
      LSB-based printer driver packages work.
    - Added Conflicts/Replaces against cups-filters-invalid-mta and
      cups-filters-lsb for upgrade compatibility from the Xenial development
      cycle.
    - lsb_release.py: restore support for querying the list of installed
      modules, since for the moment some modules are still supported.
    - Make the 'lsb' package depend on libjpeg62 as well, known to be needed
      by printer driver packages.
  * Dropped changes:
    - 01-upstart-lsb: obsoleted upstream, no longer used in Ubuntu.

Binary packages built by this source

lsb: Linux Standard Base support package

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package provides an implementation of only the printing and core
 modules of the Linux Standard Base for Ubuntu. Recent versions of Ubuntu
 do not implement the full LSB interfaces; this package is provided only for
 compatibility with third-party printer driver packages which depend on the
 lsb package.
 .
 The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way
 of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its presence
 does not imply that Ubuntu fully complies with the Linux Standard Base,
 and should not be construed as a statement that Ubuntu is LSB-compliant.

lsb-base: Linux Standard Base init script functionality

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package only includes the init-functions shell library, which
 may be used by other packages' initialization scripts for console
 logging and other purposes.

lsb-core: Linux Standard Base core support package

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package provides an implementation of the core of the Linux Standard
 Base for Debian on the Intel x86, Intel ia64 (Itanium), IBM S390, and
 PowerPC 32-bit architectures with the Linux kernel. Future revisions of the
 specification and this package may support the LSB on additional
 architectures and kernels.
 .
 The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way
 of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its
 presence does not imply that Debian fully complies
 with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a
 statement that Debian is LSB-compliant.

lsb-invalid-mta: Linux Standard Base sendmail dummy

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package contains nothing else than a fake /usr/sbin/sendmail
 command to fulfill the LSB's requirement of providing this command without
 requiring an MTA to get installed, which once introduces a daemon which
 can cause security problems and second, users get asked questions about
 how they want their MTA configured when in reality they simply wanted to
 install a desktop application or a printer driver, but the dependency on
 LSB compliance pulls in an MTA with the installation.
 .
 The LSB requirement on /usr/sbin/sendmail comes from old times where Linux
 and Unix machines had all fixed IPs and did server tasks in data centers.
 Today's typical desktop Linux machines do not do local e-mail any more as
 users use external e-mail services.
 .
 The /usr/sbin/sendmail always exits with exit status -1 (255) and sends a
 warning message to stderr, so that if a program actually tries to send e-mail
 via the sendmail command the user gets note.

lsb-printing: Linux Standard Base Printing package

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package provides an implementation of the Linux Standard Base
 Printing specification for Debian on the Intel x86, Intel ia64 (Itanium),
 IBM S390, and PowerPC 32-bit architectures with the Linux kernel. Future
 revisions of the specification and this package may support the LSB on
 additional architectures and kernels.
 .
 The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way
 of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its
 presence does not imply that Debian fully complies
 with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a
 statement that Debian is LSB-compliant.

lsb-release: Linux Standard Base version reporting utility

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 The lsb-release command is a simple tool to help identify the Linux
 distribution being used and its compliance with the Linux Standard Base.
 LSB conformance will not be reported unless the required metapackages are
 installed.
 .
 While it is intended for use by LSB packages, this command may also
 be useful for programmatically distinguishing between a pure Debian
 installation and derived distributions.

lsb-security: Linux Standard Base Security package

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package provides an implementation of the Linux Standard Base Security
 specification for Debian on the Intel x86, Intel ia64 (Itanium), IBM S390,
 and PowerPC 32-bit architectures with the Linux kernel. Future revisions of
 the specification and this package may support the LSB on additional
 architectures and kernels.
 .
 The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way
 of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its
 presence does not imply that Debian fully complies
 with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a
 statement that Debian is LSB-compliant.
