pollinate (4.33-0ubuntu1) cosmic; urgency=medium
* pollinate: fix bug on xen when not booted with systemd. user-agent
would contain virt/virt/xen rather than virt/xen. (LP: #1774043)

its availability based on /run/systemd.

pollinate (4.28-0ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium
[ Dustin Kirkland ]
* pollinate:
- add hypervisor to useragent string
* debian/pollinate.postinst:
- ensure that the pollinate user owns /var/cache/pollinate;
to be safe, we're going to do this just after the mkdir, and
after the adduser;
this avoids the warning:
+ adduser: Warning: The home directory /var/cache/pollinate
does not belong to the user you are currently creating.
[ Steve Langasek ]
* Minor enhancements to pollinate runtime:
- dpkg | awk is unnecessary, dpkg-query --showformat does this
* dpkg -l is a fairly heavyweight operation (.1s); ask logger directly
what its version number is (.01s)
[ Scott Moser ]
* pollinate:
- Add cloud image build info and data in /etc/pollinate/add-user-agent.
- Use systemd-detect-virt and namespace virt/<type> in useragent
2017-08-18 - Dimitri John Ledkov <xnox@ubuntu.com>
pollinate (4.27-0ubuntu1) artful; urgency=medium
