Bug#761942: arb: General update after the debconf review process

Dear Debian maintainer,

On Sunday, September 21, 2014, I sent you a notification about the beginning of a review
action on debconf templates for arb.

Then, I sent you a bug report with rewritten templates and announcing
the beginning of the second phase of this action: call for translation

Translators have been working hard and here is now the result of their efforts.

Please consider using it EVEN if you committed files to your
development tree as long as they were reported.

The attached tarball contains:

- debian/changelog with the list of changes
- debian/control with rewrites of packages' descriptions
- debian/<templates> with all the rewritten templates file(s)
- debian/po/*.po with all PO files (existing ones and new ones)

As said, please use *at least* the PO files as provided here,
preferrably over those sent by translators in their bug reports. All
of them have been checked and reformatted. In some cases, formatting
errors have been corrected.

The patch.rfr file contains a patch for the templates and control
file(s) alone.

Please note that this patch applies to the templates and control

Bug#767449: systemctl forces reboot with every shutdown

Package: systemd
Version: 215-5+b1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Thanks very much for all of your work. The core of my report is this:
following an upgrade to testing on October 30th 2014, I am unable to
shut down my laptop. Almost every way of shutting down is followed by
a forced reboot (which of course I do not want).

   * What led up to the situation?

Upgrading to testing on Thursday October 30th 2014. This included an
upgrade to libsystemd0, libpam-systemd, systemd, systemd-sysv,
libsystemd-daemon0, libsystemd-id128-0, libsystemd-journal0,

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

1. In Gnome 3: Tried to shutdown using the power-down icon in the
dropdown menu of the status bar. The system shut down and rebooted.

2. In Gnome 3: pressed and held the power button (configured in
gnome-tweak-tool to power down). The system shut down and immediately

3. From the command-line as root, typed `shutdown -h now'. The system
shut down and immediately rebooted.

Bug#767448: No way to override settings from /usr/share/initramfs-tools/conf-hooks.d/*

Package: initramfs-tools

There is no way for user to override settings from 

For example, dropbear package in file /usr/.../conf-hooks.d/dropbear 
sets UMASK variable to 0077. User cannot override this with his own 
setting in /etc.

The only way to do that is to edit /usr/.../conf-hooks.d/dropbear file 
directly and change UMASK. However, such change will be of course 
overwritten on a next update of dropbear package.

In my opinion, user-provided settings from /etc/* should have priority 
over package-provided settings form /usr/*.

Bug#743477: grub2: grub fails with "error: 'grub_term_highlight_color' not found"

Source: grub2
Followup-For: Bug #743477


I have recently had to help someone out with this bug and I don't think this 
is actually bug. What has happened here is grub-pc thinks that update-grub 
is supposed to be ran on a drive that your bios is no looking at, but 
probably has an older version of grub already installed. This works fine 
until one day you update your grub package and boom, you get this error 
the way to fix this is chrooting but it's pretty involved. I have however 
fixed it with this method. There is also additonal talk and infomration 
about this over at the ubuntu but report thread:

Good luck.

Bug#767445: python-docker: throws ValueError exception on attempting any command

Package: python-docker
Version: 0.5.3-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I'm finding it impossible to do anything with the API. The ipython
backtrace is pasted below.

My python fu is relatively limited, but the problem looks like for some
reason the requests module is changing the timeout from a number to a
Timeout object, and urllib barfs. I couldn't reproduce the issue using
plain requests (ie, creating a session, adding the HttpAdapter and
sending a request), so I'm filing the bug here. If the bug is elsewhere,
please reassign as appropriate.

In [2]: c = Client()

In [3]: c.version()

Bug#767443: network-manager: nm-applet left-click menu disappears when button is released

Package: network-manager
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

If I left-click on the nm-applet icon (in the Xfce systray), the menu
only stays up as long as I hold the button down.  As soon as I release
the button, the menu disappears.  If I click-release, I expect the
menu to stay open.

(If I right-click and release, the menu stays open as expected.)

A web search revealed an Arch Linux discussion[1], which refers to a
Fedora bug and workaround patch[2].
