Bug Description

[impact]
 * miscellaneous changes in upstart SRU to trusty:
   * debian/manpages/upstart-events.7: Correction for 'rotate-logs'.
   * debian/upstart.cron.daily: Specify full path to initctl.
   * init/man/init.8: Add missing information on '--chroot-sessions'.
   * debian/upstart.apport: Sort system and session jobs.

manpages - update to be factually correct with behavior seen in trusty-release upstart.
sort upstart jobs in the apport hook, for easy of comparison/diffing during report aggregation and analysis.
use the system initctl to emit rotate-logs event.

[testcases]
  * file ubuntu-bug against upstart, check that running jobs attachment has all jobs sorted
  * inspect manpages to render correctly & describe correct behaviour
  * check that rotate-logs event is emitted daily

This bug was fixed in the package upstart - 1.12.1-0ubuntu4.2

---------------
upstart (1.12.1-0ubuntu4.2) trusty; urgency=medium

  * Safe guard against SESSIONTYPE-less sessions. (LP: #1343905)

upstart (1.12.1-0ubuntu4.1) trusty; urgency=medium

  [ James Hunt ] LP: #1317727
  * debian/manpages/upstart-events.7: Correction for 'rotate-logs'.
  * debian/upstart.cron.daily: Specify full path to initctl.
  * init/man/init.8: Add missing information on '--chroot-sessions'.
  * debian/upstart.apport: Sort system and session jobs.

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * xsession-init: Set $GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID if we are launching a
    gnome-session session. Some applications (Qt4) require this to be set to
    any value to detect the environment in use. It was historically set by
    gnome-session but now this is no longer the root of the session so not all
    user processes are guaranteed to have it. (LP: #1305294)

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * Cherrypick reboot command fix to not process REBOOTCOMMAND argument
    when in runlevels 2-5 and without using force flag. (LP: #1174272)
