Cryptsetup is in bionic-proposed, but before it migrates and this ticket is resolved, test regressions need to be fixed.

Migrated on the 24th of February:

cryptsetup (2:2.0.1-0ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
    - debian/control:
      + Depend on plymouth.
      + Invert the "busybox | busybox-static" Recommends, as the latter
        is the one we ship in main as part of the ubuntu-standard task.
      + Drop explicit libgcrypt20 dependency from libcryptsetup4.
    - Drop _BSD_SOURCE in favor of _DEFAULT_SOURCE
    - Drop c99 std, as the default is now higher than that
    - Drop upstart system jobs.
    - Add maintscript to drop removed upstart system jobs.
      - debian has its own now, but we have different version numbers
  * New upstream release
  * Cherry-pick Guilhem Moulin's changes below from Debian git

  [ Guilhem Moulin ]
   * New upstream release 2.0.1:
     - Use /run/cryptsetup as default for cryptsetup locking dir.
     - Add missing symbols for new functions to debian/libcryptsetup12.symbols.
  * debian/copyright: update copyright years.
  * debian/patches: backport upstream's 8728ba08 to fix opening of loop-AES
    devices using --key-file=-. (Closes: #888162.)

cryptsetup (2:2.0.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Guilhem Moulin ]
  * cryptsetup-bin: Install /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/cryptsetup.conf to create the
    LUKS2 locking directory /run/lock/cryptsetup. For sysVinit, this is taken
    care of by the cryptdisks-early init file.
  * Remove debian/patches/Use-system-libargon2.patch (applied upstream).
  * debian/README.{source,gbp.conf}: Upgrade to latest upstream conventions.
  * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.3 (remove verbatim copy of
    CC0-1.0 license from debian/copyright).
  * debian/rules: Fix symlink target of libcryptsetup.so in libcryptsetup-dev
    package. Thanks to Alan Fung for the report and patch. (Closes: #885435.)
  * debian/initramfs/cryptroot-{hook,script}: Add support for 'skip' and
    'offset' crypttab(5) options in the initramfs script. Thanks to Pascal
    Liehne for the report and patch. (Closes: #872342.)

  [ Jonas Meurer ]
  * debian/initramfs/cryptopensc-*: Install required libs and config files for
    pcscd and use correct path to pcscd. Thanks to Martijn van de Streek for
    bugreport and patch. (Closes: #880750)

cryptsetup (2:2.0.0~rc1-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * debian/rules: Compile with --enable-libargon2 to use system libargon2
    instead of bundled version.
  * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.1 (no changes necessary).
  * debian/copyright: Update licensing information.

cryptsetup (2:2.0.0~rc0-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * New upstream release 2.0.0 RC0 (closes: #877566). Highlights include:
    - Support for new on-disk LUKS2 format, offering authenticated disk
      encrption (EXPERIMENTAL), memory-hard PBKDF (argon2), kernel keyring for
      storage of key material, and more.
    - New CLI `integritysetup` which can setup standalone dm-integrity devices.
    - soname bump of libcryptsetup library.
  * Rename library package from libcryptsetup4 to libcryptsetup12.
  * Also remove deprecated upstart configuration files on upgrade and purge.
