  * update-secureboot-policy:
    - Add a --help option, document other options. (LP: #1604936)
    - Rework prompting to display our Secure Boot warning and explanation
      text more prominently, rather than forcing graphical users to hit
      "Help" to see the full explanation for why we ask about disabling
      Secure Boot. (LP: #1595611)

shim-signed: Secure Boot chain-loading bootloader (Microsoft-signed binary)

 This package provides a minimalist boot loader which allows verifying
 signatures of other UEFI binaries against either the Secure Boot DB/DBX or
 against a built-in signature database. Its purpose is to allow a small,
 infrequently-changing binary to be signed by the UEFI CA, while allowing
 an OS distributor to revision their main bootloader independently of the CA.
 This package contains the version of the bootloader binary signed by the
 Microsoft UEFI CA.
