** Description changed:

  [Impact]
  
  Trusty is about to enter ESM (Extended Security Maintenance). While a
  new ubuntu-advantage-tools client is in development and almost finished,
  we thought it best to update the existing client in the meantime,
  already shipped in trusty, to support ESM.
- 
  
  [Test Case]
  * Install ubuntu-advantage-tools from trusty-updates:
  sudo apt install ubuntu-advantage-tools
  
  * Verify that it says esm is not avaiable:
  $ ubuntu-advantage status
  livepatch: disabled
  
  esm: disabled (not available)
  
  fips: disabled (not available)
  
  * Update the client to the version in proposed and run status again. This time it should have no remark about esm being not available:
  $ ubuntu-advantage status
  livepatch: disabled
  
  esm: disabled
  
  fips: disabled (not available)
  
- 
- [Regression Potential] 
+ [Regression Potential]
  The existing trusty ubuntu-advantage-tools package only supports livepatch. This update is not touching that part of the code, but instead adding support for esm which was previously not available.
- 
  
  [Other Info]
  There will be a new update soon, that completely revamps the package. That will be subject to a new, different, SRU.
+ 
+ Xenial is not being updated with these changes because there is no ESM
+ for xenial.
+ 
+ Finally, I re-enabled the test suite at package build time, which had
+ been disabled in a previous upload.
