Bug Description

redboot-tools has not been used in ubuntu since the days where the imx51 arm achitecture was supported. nowadays nothing uses it anymore, there is a "Recommends: redboot-tools" in ubiquity that needs to be removed before demoting though.

  * KDE PartAuto.py Translate strings which previously were not translated.
    Thanks to Pantelis Koukousoulas

  [ Oliver Grawert ]
  * drop recommends of redboot-tools so the package can go to universe
    (LP: #1064271)

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Try to install a signed kernel if base-installer asks for one.
  * If the SecureBoot EFI variable is set, then ensure that
    grub-efi-amd64-signed and shim-signed remain installed.
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: base-installer
    1.122ubuntu12, console-setup 1.70ubuntu6, flash-kernel 3.0~rc.4ubuntu27,
    grub-installer 1.78ubuntu5.

demotions don't need to be filed as bugs on the packages in question; now that ubiquity doesn't recommend redboot-tools, the archive admins will take care of the rest.
