Sorry, this was closed so I ignored it. I'll sponsor this to lucid-proposed instead, it needs to become an SRU now.

Gerry, I have some questions/issues:

+ * Disable automatic startup of dcerpcd and eventlogd to prevent
+ listening on inbound ports

This is a behaviour change to 2ubuntu1 which is/will be in final. This isn't appropriate as a post-release update, I'm afraid.

debian/likewise-open-gui.desktop changes a string, which isn't appropriate for the string freeze/post release update (since it breaks translations).

changelog: Please use "lucid-proposed" now, and add a reference to this bug (LP: #566392). SRUs always need a bug reference.

The rest looks fine.

Thanks!

Thanks Martin. Listening on inbounds is a change from previous releases however. So this change reinstates the previous behavior. Should I just wait until someone files a bug about that behavior and then fix it? For the other changes, I can trim them down on a bug by bug basis.

Tricky case here. My concern is if someone installs final, has inbound
connections working, then installs updates and suddenly they break,
which is unexpected.

Is there any downside of inbound connection? In particular, do they
pose a security risk? If so, then we should indeed disable them again.

If they do not pose any particular risk:
As a compromise, would it be possible to do the SRU in a way that
upgraders from hardy/karmic keep inbound connections disabled, while
they are enabled for fresh lucid installs?

Thanks,

Martin

Gerry, there was some question for you in the previous comment. Is that SRU still an issue? Thanks!

Unsubscribing the release team for now. This would (now) require a FFe to get into Maverick, so please resubscribe the release team when ready.
