Bug Description

In 11.10 cloud images, we made the decision to enable byobu by default to showcase it.

There has recently been some discussion that has lead us to decide that this should be disabled in 12.04, and also in future releases of 11.10.

== Test Case ==
 There are 2 behaviors that are intended to be changed with this bug:
 a.) new official images of both precise and 11.10 will not have
     byobu enabled by default.
 b.) if the user wants to have byobu on newly launched instances, they
     can do so with 'export LC_BYOBU=1'

 To test:
 1. old image, no user-data
    * launch new instance of oneiric daily build with serial < 20111109
    * ssh ubuntu@instance (you should see byobu)
    * enable proposed ; sudo apt-get dist-update && sudo apt-get install byobu
    * exit instance
    * ssh ubuntu@instance (you should still see byobu)

 2. launch new instance of oneiric daily build with serial > 20111109
    with no user-data.
    * unset LC_BYOBU
    * 'ssh ubuntu@instance'
      You should not be presented with byobu
    * enable proposed
    * apt-get update && apt-get install byobu
    * exit instance
    * 'ssh ubuntu@instance'

 3. launch instance of oneiric daily < 20111109 providing cloud-config
    * cat > my-userdata.txt <<EOF
byobu_by_default: disable-system
 - source: deb $MIRROR $RELEASE-proposed main
 - byobu
    * launch instance with "--user-data-file my-userdata.txt"
    * 'ssh ubuntu@instance' (you should not see byobu)
    * LC_BYOBU=1 'ssh ubuntu@instance' (you should see byobu)

 4. launch instance with same user-data as above, but 'enable-system'
    * ssh to instance with LC_BYOBU=1, should show you byobu
    * ssh to instance with LC_BYOBU=0, should *not* show you byobu

After the change in auotmated-ec2-builds (rev 418 [1]), byobu will no longer be enabled by default.

Dustin's proposed change in byobu will just make it easier for someone to *enable* byobu if the so desire.


Hello Scott, or anyone else affected,

Accepted byobu into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Note, please provide a clear SRU justification before we move this to oneiric-updates:

I'm most interested in a TEST CASE .. but the regression potential and impact should also be documented.

Changed in byobu (Ubuntu Precise):
status: In Progress → Fix Released

Generating new Oneiric cloud images now. I should have new release images ready tomorrow or Monday.

Scratch comment 5. New cloud-images will be released once the kernel update is available in 13 days.

The fix for this bug has been awaiting testing feedback in the -proposed repository for oneiric for more than 90 days. Please test this fix and update the bug appropriately with the results. In the event that the fix for this bug is still not verified 15 days from now, the package will be removed from the -proposed repository.
