Hello Steve, or anyone else affected,

Accepted livecd-rootfs into trusty-proposed. The package will build now
and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/livecd-
rootfs/2.208.12 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in

  ubuntu-core tarballs to be renamed to ubuntu-base

Bug description:
  [SRU Justification]
  To remove confusion with the ubuntu-core snappy product, the ubuntu-core root tarballs are being retroactively renamed to ubuntu-base.  This requires an SRU of livecd-rootfs to align with the changes in ubuntu-cdimage, so that daily/point release builds of the ubuntu-base tarballs continue to be possible.

  [Regression potential]
  Minimal; this is a minimal change to livecd-rootfs to recognize the ubuntu-base project name, all other code is left unchanged.

  [Test case]
  1. Run an ubuntu-base build with -proposed by running 'DIST=[xenial|trusty] PROPOSED=1 for-project ubuntu-core cron.daily-live --live'
  2. Confirm that the tarball builds successfully and contains a rootfs.
