Suggests tftpd-hpa instead of Recommends

Bug #1152809 reported by Andres Rodriguez

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
maas-provision (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

maas-provision will soon become an obsolete package and no longer a dependency of MAAS, once the new MAAS SRU is released. However, in order for the upgrade to the new package goes smoothly, the tftpd-hpa Recommends should become a Suggets. This way we ensure that 'maas' the upgrade won't fail.

[test case]
1. Add ppa:maas-maintainers/stable (maas SRU package candidate)
2. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade: You will see that 'maas' will be removed instead of upgraded.
3. When the fix is in place, do the same as step 2, and upgrade will continue successfully, removing tftpd-hpa.

    This package will become obsolete once the MAAS SRU is released. Making
    this change will allow 'maas' to upgrade correctly without conflicting
    with 'maas-provision', hence upgrading successfully.
