unblock request for vzctl
Hi release team
I'd like you to unblock vzctl. I have backported a number of important
bugs from the upstream 188.8.131.52 source. Not all as not all affect Debian,
but the packports can be considered to be important.
The most important change in this new version is the solution to
#576227. It is cricial to solve that as vzctl would not support insserv
otherwise and insserv is one of the really important features in Debian
However the solution for that was not really easy. You can see a lot of
differences in this package due to this change. I have applied 12 patch-sets
from upstream in order to make that work. This also affected the automake.am
files which forced me to run the upstream build commands. Due to this there
are quite some differences here and there in the package. Hope you understand
In addition to that I have done a number of documentation changes as well.
I know that this kind of change is not easy for you to track, so please forgive
me, but it was really the only feasible solution to the critical problem with
More details are available in the following changelog entries.
vzctl (3.0.24-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Make sure vzeventd can read options from /etc/default/vzeventd.
This is a correction of the backported solution for #576227 in last upload.
Documented this functionality as well.
* Changed the README.Debian file so that it documents how to install squeeze
instead of how to install lenny. In a addition a number of language
corrections was made. Also clarification on network configuration was done.
* Documented in the README.Debian file that /etc/mailname should be changed
when creating the container. Closes: #50086.
* Changed the package description so it do not refer to the kernel patch
package as it do no longer exist.
