Comment 37 for bug 1504781

Hi Marc,
please check comment #33 from Serge. He explained that formally lxc in precise is not covered by lts.

However a very special case as a LTS update in main in precise (kernel) did break unrelated software (lxc) which is a clear regression.
And then not having that other software not in being in main -> skips it from LTS is lets say very annoying.

@Robert:
using that higher version of lxc is not a perfect drop-up replacement either as usage changed compared to old precise lxc (i.e. no lxc-list anymore but lxc-ls -f) and maybe other changes.

We'll probably look into backporting the lxc fix for precise as we have quite a few machines affected. But no ETA, so if anybody else here can pick that up before that would be very welcome.

@Serge:
Any chance to get some policy statement from Ubuntu here? As i see maybe that example as very special regression caused by lts update should maybe warrant fixing items not in main if broken by it.
