initramfs-tools 0.136ubuntu6.8 source package in Ubuntu


initramfs-tools (0.136ubuntu6.8) focal; urgency=medium

  * Fix configuring BOOTIF when using iSCSI (LP: #2056187)
  * Port the net autopkgtest to the common test framework. This drops
    depending on downloading a cloud image from the Internet and reduces
    the execution time from 3:19 min down to 0:57 min. Also backport
    autopkgtest improvements from version 0.142ubuntu23 to run the
    test on all architectures and to check more results from qemu-net.
