pollinate 4.18-0ubuntu2~16.04 source package in Ubuntu


pollinate (4.18-0ubuntu2~16.04) xenial-proposed; urgency=medium

  * debian/pollinate.service: Move installation from network.target to
    multi-user.target. network.target is too early and causes dependency loops
    with e. g. NFS. (LP: #1576333)
  * debian/pollinate.preinst: Clean up old enablement symlink on upgrade. This
    needs to be kept until after 18.04 LTS.

pollinate: seed the pseudo random number generator

 This client will connect to one or more Pollen (entropy-as-a-service)
 servers over an (optionally) encrypted connection and retrieve a random
 seed over HTTP or HTTPS.
 This is particularly useful at the first boot of cloud images and in
 virtual machines, to seed a system's random number generator at
 genesis, and is intended to supplement the /etc/init.d/urandom init script.
 It can be used on physical machines, as well, to supplement the seeding
 of the psuedo random number generator.
