pollinate 4.21-0ubuntu1~14.04 source package in Ubuntu


pollinate (4.21-0ubuntu1~14.04) trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * pollinate:
    - fix broken printing of binary data, this was breaking check_pollen
      nagios scripts on the server

  [ Junien Fridrick ]
  * entropy.ubuntu.com.pem:
    - simplify CA cert to just the DigiCert chain (drop GoDaddy)

pollinate (4.20-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * debian/control:
    - drop the anerd references, hasn't existed in basically forever
    - update description
    - add dummy | dh-apparmor dependency to get this building on precise,
      where dh-systemd doesn't exist
    - drop run-one dependency, no longer needed
    - make the bsdutils dependency (for logger) explicit, add epoch
  * debian/rules:
    - use systemd, when possible
  * pollinate:
    - fix breakage on older (trusty, precise) Ubuntu, where logger does not
      support --id=[ID]; check version of bsdutils (provides logger) to
      ensure that it's at least ubuntu wily
    - cloud-init version string
  * debian/pollinate.service, debian/pollinate.upstart:
    - improve the init messages logged

pollinate (4.19-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * 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 (4.18-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * debian/pollinate.service:
    - move to later in boot, after network starts, but before ssh starts

pollinate (4.17-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * debian/pollinate.service:
    - use the right flag file for LP: #1578833

pollinate (4.16-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Don't run pollinate.service in containers (as containers can't and should
    not write the host's random pool) and when we already have a saved random
    seeds (i. e. only on first boot). (LP: #1578833)
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8 (no changes needed).

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * pollinate: use timeout(1) to limit curl, related to LP: #1578833

pollinate (4.15-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * pollinate: LP: #1555362
    - log the right pid

pollinate (4.14-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * pollinate, pollinate.1: LP: #1554152
    - change the failure mode of pollinate, so as to more cleanly
      tolerate network failures
    - add a --strict option to re-enable the previous behavior,
      ie, strictly exit non-zero if pollinate fails for any reason
    - we've always promised that pollinate would operate on a best-effort
      basis, improving the prng seeding when possible, but failing
      gracefully when not possible; as such, we've made good on the first
      half of that promise, however, the latter half has proven
      troublesome;  this is due to the fact that if pollinate exits
      non-zero, then its callers (cloud-init, maas, etc.) may well
      interpret the behavior strictly as a failure to boot the system,
      when in fact that's not the case;  instead, we'll clearly print
      a warning to syslog, and we'll retry the seeding on next pollinate
      service start (e.g. a reboot);  moreover, we'll carry a --strict
      flag in the case that users want to opt into the previous behavior

pollinate (4.13-0ubuntu1) wily; urgency=medium

  [ Robie Basak ]
  * entropy.ubuntu.com.pem:
    - Add "DigiCert Global Root CA" certificate from ca-certificates
      package to entropy.ubuntu.com.pem. This is required to correctly
      verify against the new entropy.ubuntu.com SSL certificate.

pollinate (4.12-0ubuntu1) wily; urgency=medium

  * pollinate:
    - add cpu hardware model to user agent
  * entropy.ubuntu.com.pem:
    - entropy.ubuntu.com SSL is coming up for renewal on 2015-09-15
    - update the certs for the pollinate package
    - Note that this changes the issuing CA to DigiCert, which requires
      a new intermediary.

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.
