  pollinate (4.23-0ubuntu1~12.04) precise; urgency=medium

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * New upstream release (LP: #1621280):
    - pollinate:
      + revert revision r300, as this was the wrong fix to the slow
        pollinate problem; as it turns out, it was the user_agent
        function, which was running apt-cache very early in boot, before
        the apt database had been created
      + as it turns out, we need the curl timeout options in order for
        curl to work properly and be resilient against issues with the
        network coming up early in boot
    - debian/pollinate.default, pollinate
      + fix a couple of bugs affecting how long pollinate takes, and if
        it actually completes successfully
      + dpkg -l is way faster than apt-cache, when there is no apt cache
      + wait a maximum of 10 seconds
      + only log to stderr if in an interactive terminal; otherwise,
        just log to syslog
        - this fixes the odd double-printing to /var/log/syslog
      + optimize obtaining version strings by saving one pipe per call
      + source /etc/lsb/release and use $DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION, rather
        than calling lsb-release (python, can be slow)
      + add -m (max-timeout) back to curl options; removing this option
        has caused network failures in various strange ways
      + when network fails due to timeout, log accordingly
      + ignore cloud-init package not found; it's optional
