Bug Description

Landscape Client 1.5.5.1 has been released. We would like to get these changes into Lucid, Karmic and Jaunty.

As far as released version of Ubuntu are concerned, the required pieces of information for the needed SRU follow (as laid out in the "Procedure" section of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates).

=== Statement explaining the impact ===

This release sports both bug-fixes and new features and we would like to make sure all of our supported customers (even those on Jaunty, Karmic and Lucid) have access to these improvements. The notable ones are:

1) The --help command line option can now be used without being root.

2) The client Unix sockets and symlinks are now cleaned up at shutdown. Without this cleaning, the client could refuse to start because of a PID collision.

3) The network traffic plugin didn't use to take into account integer overflows. This would cause the plugin to send negative values sometimes.

4) If a payload had many user activities in it, only the last one would be carried out.

5) The Eucalyptus plugin was not enabled by default, which means the Cloud Topology feature of Landscape was not available.

6) The client network plugin would send erroneous data if a network interface was removed (and its kernel module removed as well) and then readded.

For more details see Bug #613256, Bug #607747, Bug #615371, Bug #617624, Bug #614493 and Bug #641264 (all mentioned in the debian/changelog of the proposed packages).

The current upload in lucid-proposed queue includes two changelogs/new versions: 1.5.5-0ubuntu0.10.04.0 and 1.5.5.1-0ubuntu0.10.04.0. Please reupload the source package using debuild -v1.5.4-0ubuntu0.10.04.0, so that both of them are included into the source.changes, and all bugs of 1.5.5-0ubuntu0.10.04.0 are covered as well.

I'm setting the jaunty task as 'fix committed' because landscape-client 1.5.5.1-0ubuntu0.9.04.0 is in jaunty-proposed and and the associated reports have been verified.
Marking as verification-done.
