  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * ubuntu-support-status: instead of checking the Release timestamp in
    the releases file for every single package on the system, get the
    release date from distro-info-data because it will always be the same.
    This speeds up the script by > 50% in testing.

  [ Marc Deslauriers ]
  * ubuntu-support-status: use component to differentiate packages
    supported by the community and packages supported by Canonical, and
    override the Supported tag for main and restricted to work around the
    inaccurate Packages files. (LP: #1574670)

Version: 1:16.04.10 2017-10-31 18:07:11 UTC

  update-manager (1:16.04.10) xenial; urgency=medium

  * UpdateManager/UpdatesAvailable.py: Provide instructions when mount points
    have insufficient free space for the upgrade to complete. (LP: #1477455)
  * test_update_origin.py: fix the extended origin matcher test as it was
    making wrong assumptions, not checking if packages actually had ANY package
    in -security. This should fix the current autopkgtest failures.

Version: 1:16.04.9 2017-08-28 21:07:01 UTC

  update-manager (1:16.04.9) xenial; urgency=medium

  * UpdateManager/Core/UpdateList.py: Instead of trying to print an error
    when trying to find the desktop file log it. (LP: #1428297)
  * tests/test_update_origin.py: This does not need to be architecture
    specific so just set the arch to amd64 like test_update_list.py. Replace
    references to lucid with xenial as lucid is no longer on the archive.
  * tests/test_utils.py: mock /proc/net/tcp and processes in proc so that we
    are testing the code and not the system under test.
  * tests/test_cache.py: pass an empty list when getting a changelog for 3rd
    party packages.
  * tests/test_hwe_support_status.py: port to python3.
  * tests/test_meta_release_core.py: switch to a site that works with no proxy
    in the autopkgtest environment.
  * Resolve pep8 and pyflakes issues.
