Bug Description

In universe

Dependency for cinder; tgt is still the preferred iSCSI solution for Ubuntu, but patching out the support in cinder for rtslib has become increasingly complex - so we'd like to have this in main just for unit testing; the runtime dependency will remain a suggests.

No security history

[Quality assurance]
Package builds OK; no unit test suite to execute.

All in main.

[Standards compliance]

ubuntu-server/ubuntu-openstack; expected to be minimal.

So this apparently is a fork of the 'rtslib' source package. It adds python3 support and seems to be packaged better. So that's OK.

It looks OK packaging wise. It calls update-alternatives --remove in the postrm script, which is bad [1], but since it also calls it in the prerm script, I think that's fine.

I'm not super thrilled with adding a redundant iSCSI option. But I understand your reasoning. Since this runs a daemon I'll ask the security team to take a look, and they can comment on how much they'd hate supporting two iSCSI solutions.

Since this is a build-time / test-time dependency only, I'm going to go ahead and pre-promote this to main while the MIR is still under review in order to unblock cinder (and thus, unblock openstack from getting into wily, and with it sqlalchemy which is tied up in the python3.5 transition).

Is this still needed now with that recent(ish) changes to archive allowing for main build-depends in universe? And if so can be demoted back to universe?

Indeed, this was demoted back to universe for xenial. I'll mark this bug closed.
