ifupdown 0.8.17ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


ifupdown (0.8.17ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable.
    - Resolve conflicts with newer bridge-utils.  LP: #1756846.
  * Remaining changes:
    - Always call dhclient with -1, Ubuntu carries a patch so that renewal
      won't time out.
    - ifup@.service, ifupdown-hotplug: Additionally run for "auto" class. We
      don't really support "allow-hotplug" in Ubuntu at the moment, so we need
      to deal with "auto" devices appearing after the "networking" init script
      already ran. (LP: #1374521)
    - Drop obsolete upstart integration.
  * Dropped changes, included in Debian:
    - networking.service: exclude loopback device lo in ExecStop.
    - Export $CLASS to scripts.
    - Add a few missing voids for functions that do not take any parameters.
    - Add a bug-script to automatically add /etc/network/interfaces etc.  to
      reportbug output.
    - debian/ifup@.service: Start after device is up
  * Dropped changes, superseded in Debian:
    - disabled upping of bridges: this is now handled exclusively through
      ifupdown, bridge-utils hook no longer handles this at all.
