  pollinate (4.6-0ubuntu1) trusty; urgency=low

  * debian/pollinate.default:
    - move the default from POOL to SERVER
    - this way, someone can zero out SERVER, whereas POOL is always additive
  * pollinate:
    - save a few forks of hostname
  * debian/pollinate.upstart, pollinate: LP: #1286316
    - now that cloud-init itself is calling pollinate, remove the
      "start on starting cloud-init" trigger
    - when running pollinate through cloud-init, we are not guaranteed
      that syslog will be up, and smoser insists on running pollinate --quiet
      thus we will quietly log our pollinate activity in
