Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

Hello, I think an SRU is badly needed in the sevrer guide at where

     <interface type='bridge'>
       <source network='br0'/>

Should be replaced by

    <interface type='bridge'>
      <source bridge='br0'/>

Do we do SRU's for the server guide? If this is fixed how do we go about
doing SRUs for this as it is/shold be translated?

I think we can do SRUs for the server guide, but I can't remember ever actually doing one :-). Anyway, following the SRU wiki page:

1) The impact of the bug is that the instructions in the Server Guide won't work, causing confusion and wasted time for the user.

2) A fix has been committed to revision 132 of the lp:ubuntu-doc branch.

3) A patch for the ubuntu-serverguide package is attached.

4) To reproduce the bug follow the current instructions, and your VM won't be able to connect to the network using a bridge interface. Change the XML in VMBuilder/plugins/libvirt/templates/libvirtxml.tmpl and the VM should connect fine.

5) There should be no regression potential, and since the fix is an XML configuration file there should be no need to re-translate the package. At least as I understand what is and what is not translated.

I don't think I can upload a fixed package to release-proposed, or at least I have never done so. If someone else can help with the step 4 of the SRU process it would be appreciated.

It feels a bit weird to go through a full SRU sponsoring/testing/verification cycle just for this. Maybe there are more similar fixes which should be backported, too? If not, I'm okay with the debdiff, if anyone wants to sponsor it.
