base-files (9.4ubuntu4.13) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Andreas Hasenack ]
  * motd/50-motd-news: don't include uptime in the user-agent string
    (LP: #1886572)
  * Move the /etc/default/motd-news conffile to the motd-news-config
    package (LP: #1888575):
    - d/postinst.in, d/postrm, d/preinst: remove /etc/default/motd-news
      config file on base-files upgrade using dpkg-maintscript-helper
    - d/rules: install d/preinst
    - d/control: break on ubuntu-server << 1.361.5 to force an upgrade if
      it is installed, which will pull motd-news-config and the conffile
      back in
    - d/control: new motd-news-config package, carrying the
      configuration file for the /etc/update-motd.d/50-motd-news script.
    - d/motd-news-config.postinst:
      + handle the upgrade case where the motd-news config file was
        changed while it belonged to base-files
      + disable motd-news if the config file was removed by hand before
        the upgrade
    - d/postinst.in: signal the motd-news-config package if the
      motd-news config file was removed manually before the upgrade
    - d/conffiles: remove motd-news
    - d/rules, d/motd-news-config.conffiles: packaging motd-news-config
      without debhelper

  * motd/50-motd-news: use wget instead of curl, since wget is standard but
    curl is optional (LP: #1888572):
    - This changes the timeout behavior slightly because wget does not have
      an exact equivalent to curl's --max-time argument, we are using
      --timeout instead.
