Bug Description

This bug is to cover the Main Inclusion Report from libyaml. I've gone through the list of items at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MainInclusionProcess . Below are the notable items.

Rationale:
 * This is a dependency for python-yaml (MIR bug 516924). Python-yaml was added as a python module used by ec2-init in development of the ec2-config blueprint.
Security:
 * No open or recent security issues
Quality assurance:
 * Bugs: (0 serious bugs, 1 open against debian, 0 against ubuntu)
   http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?src=libyaml
   https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libyaml
 * http://packages.qa.debian.org/liby/libyaml.html
Standards compliance:
 * very standard c library package
Maintenance:
 * well maintained in debian

Background information:
libyaml provides a c library for yaml parsing. it is used by other language bindings (python-yaml). ec2-init uses python-yaml to read configuration files.
