git-ubuntu 0.9.2 Released (snap edge only)

This micro-release of git-ubuntu brings in several changes important on
the backend service.  This release is to enable rolling these changes
out into production.

There are no user-visible changes or bugfixes to the frontend, and so
we're publishing this to edge only.  If you wish to assist with testing
this release, it can be installed via:

   $ snap install --beta --classic git-ubuntu

Support for tracking multiple changelog parents addresses a long
standing edge case when importing packages that have a given package and
version string published via more than one source tree in Launchpad.
For example, when Debian and Ubuntu managed to publish the same package
version but with different deltas.  (LP: #1761332)

The recently added systemd service for the importer backend
unfortunately broke sending of diagnostic emails to the administration
team.  This release includes a fix for that and provision of additional
detail information from the journal log for importer faults.  See
doc/README.testing for details on this new testing capability.

A major improvement to git-ubuntu's self test now allows it to be run
against the snap installation.  Previously, one needed to build a new
snap package in order to run the self test.
