Public bug reported:

Please backport ipmitool 1.8.15-1ubuntu1 (universe) from wily to trusty.

Reason for the backport:
ipmitool has a feature do to firmware upgrade using USB and HPM(Hardware Platform Management) that is not trivial to port to version 1.8.13, so, I am asking to have ipmitool version 1.8.15 in trusty-backports and continue to have 1.8.13 in trusty archive. This is going to enable users to do HPM firmware upgrade when downloading ipmitool version from backports.

Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s wily -d trusty ipmitool

* trusty:
[x] Package builds without modification
[x] ipmitool-dbgsym installs cleanly and runs
[x] ipmitool installs cleanly and runs

Reverse dependencies:
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of ipmitool. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new ipmitool. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new ipmitool installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.


* hobbit-plugins
  [ ] trusty (Reverse-Suggests)
* maas-cluster-controller
  [ ] trusty (Reverse-Suggests)
